Week 3

August    6th - The Transfiguration
                 8th - St Mary of the Cross
              10th - St Lawrence
              11th - St Clare 

Saint Clare was a great friend and follower of St Francis of Assisi who our Pope Francis is named after. Saint Clare and her sisters lived a very simple life and kept silent most of the time. Their lives consisted of manual labour and prayer. Yet, they were very happy because Our Lord was close to them all the time. Today many people talk of living a minimalist life. This is not new. Look to our saints for inspiration.
