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.

Saint Clare, as a young girl you left everything and gave your life to God and to the poorest of the poor in your native town of Assisi. You were inspired by the words of St. Francis who pointed you in the direction of Jesus and the Most Blessed Sacrament. Please pray for us…

(Mention your intentions here)

… that I will seek Jesus as our first love and please help us to grow in love so that we may care for the poor and offer our everyday lives to God.

We are inspired by your words, “The kingdom of heaven is promised and given by the Lord only to the poor: for he who loves temporal things loses the fruit of love.”

Saint Clare, intercede for us! That we may not seek to obtain physical objects but that we may seek the love of God! For we know that temporal objects will not satisfy the needs of our hearts. The longing we feel will only be fulfilled when our hearts rest in Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Most Holy Saint Clare, we strive to be poor of spirit 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.
