The Little Flower of Saint Francis . . .

Chiara

Chiara departed her family on Palm Sunday to share in her Savior’s glory.
Francesco received her, he beheld her radiance,
with the Eucharist burning fresh in her heart.

Francesco cut away her golden hair, which fell to the earth
like sweet palm branches to glorify her Lord.
Her earthly glory cast to the ground
to free her from the schemes and dreams of the worldy.
She needed it not, for sin has stripped us all of any excellence.
Yet her countenance was irradiated by the real presence of Christ.
Chiara had found the pearl of great price.

God sees all our choices and the secret sacrifices of our hearts.
He alone knows the things that cause our hearts to ascend
and perfect our nature and recreate our future.
She was the first born of many Sisters. Her inner beauty would flow like a river
attracting sisters of prayer and contemplation, forming her order of poor ladies.
For blessed are the poor in spirit, the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
They have found the pearl of great price.
In enclosure they are polished to a great shining.

Francesco watched with joy how his little plant grew like a mustard seed,
one day she would lift high the Blessed Sacrament to scatter the darkness,
for she could see the feast of heaven, the wedding of the Lamb, Christ the King.
Both the footprints of Saint Francis and Saint Clare
provide a path of wonder to follow.
