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.

Blessed St. Clare we are inspired by your words,

“Place your mind in the mirror of eternity;

Place your soul in the splendor of glory;

Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance;

And, through contemplation, transform your entire being into the image of the Divine One Himself;

So that you, yourself, may also experience what His friends experience when they taste the hidden sweetness that God alone has kept from the beginning.

For those who love Him.”

Help us to place our minds, souls and hearts in the Lord’s hands. Show us how to contemplate and transform ourselves into faithful followers of God. Glorious Saint Clare, you lived a life full of love, prayer, and penance. Help us to fulfill our destiny that we may one day greet you in Heaven.

Have pity on us who struggle in our faith, O Saint Clare. Your faith is steadfast and so we confidently ask you to hear our prayers … (Mention your intentions here) So that we may also taste the sweetness that God has kept for those who love Him.

Most Holy Saint Clare, we strive to be faithful 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.
