Feast of St. Clare of Assisi

There were a number of women who joined the Second Order of St. Francis, but the first and most famous was St. Clare (c. 1194-1253). She was joined 16 days later by her sister, Agnes; other women, referred to as the Poor Ladies, were eventually drawn to the hard life that Clare had chosen, and the religious order that she and Francis founded is known today as the Poor Clares.

Feasting or fasting!!! The greedy, money-oriented, popularity-obsessed world has mocked these great people like St. Francis, St. Clare of Assisi, St. Teresa of Avila, and others. People have lived greedy lives for millions of years despite of the teachings and the example of the people similar to the above mentioned enlightened true human beings. St. Clare of Assisi would certainly prefer fasting to feasting! Feasting every day beclouds the spirit.
