Dearest Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We praise you and the fruits of your grace that manifested themselves in your poor and gracious servant, Saint Clare. Through her intercession we come to you like little children to ask that you not only grant us the requests in our hearts but also that we may live as Saint Clare did in Your heart.

Most Holy Saint Clare, you were the first disciple of Saint Francis of Assisi. You abandoned all of your riches for a life of sacrifice, service and poverty in order to follow the Lord, Our God, through the Gospel. You are certainly rejoicing with God in Heaven and so we ask that you obtain for us from God the grace of…

Oh Lord, we know that you have planned for us more than we could ever imagine. We are so looking forward to having a building to call home so that we can grow our parish while loving and serving You. Please help us be patient as we come closer to finalizing building plans while still making the best financial decisions for our parish.

We are inspired by your words, “On earth, may He increase [His] grace and virtues among [His] servants and handmaids of His Church Militant. In heaven, may He exalt and glorify you in His Church Triumphant among all His men and women saints.”

Most Holy Saint Clare, we strive to be virtuous like you. We strive to be saints like you. We strive to follow the Divine Will. We strive to trust in the providence of God in our lives. Enter our hearts and make us holy!

Saint Clare, Pray for us!

That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.

Amen.
