Clothed with Gladness

The Story of St. Clare
  • By Mary St Paul
Description: The living embodiment of the prophecy given to Francis that holy ladies would one day glorify the entire Church by living at the monastery of San Damiano, St. Clare was among the first to adopt the Franciscan way of life. A saint as enchanting today as she was in her own time, she is the only person who perfectly embodied the vision of Francis, living out her vocation with his same poetic literalness. This delightfully drawn portrait sketches St. Clare in warm, human tones while carefully illuminating her overwhelming reputation for sanctity, her deep friendship with Francis, and her own spiritual development. Endorsements: ""This beautiful book is a series of vignettes, like frescoes or stained-glass windows, that depict the ideals and life of St. Clare of Assisi. In it, you will come to know one of the most dedicated of all Christ's followers of the last two thousand years."" --Fr. Benedict J. Groeschel, CFR ""The life beautifully sketched in this book is one meant to invite people of all centuries to approach the heroic form of life to which Christ endlessly calls many who are most dear to him."" --Fr. Ronald Lawler, OFM Cap ""An elegantly written biography of St. Clare as the 'little plant' of Francis, a woman of singular purpose, iron will, and deep love and compassion. The joy that characterizes Franciscans emerges from these pages."" --Fr. Julian Davies, OFM, past editor of the Franciscan Cord
