Saint Clare of Assisi (16 July 1194 – 11 August 1253), born in Italy, was a close follower of Saint Francis of Assisi and the founder of the Order of Poor Ladies, later known as the Poor Clares. She was deeply inspired by the radical message of Francis and chose a life of poverty, prayer, and service to God. Clare and her companions lived a life of seclusion and simplicity, devoting themselves to prayer and contemplation. She played a significant role in the early development of the Franciscan movement and influenced countless women to embrace the ideals of poverty and humility. Saint Clare’s life of holiness and devotion to Christ continues to inspire people around the world, and she is venerated as the patron saint of television and eye disease. Her feast day is celebrated on August 11th.
