"Assisi Is Miraculously Rescued. As the saint raised the Sun of justice above the walls that the enemies were already attacking, it seemed that a lightning bolt suddenly resounded. They were all turned over, knocked down, and blinded."

Friends,

Here is the meaning of the French words:

(At the top:)
"St. Claire, Virgin and First Abbess of the Poor Clares -- Feast, August 12"

(At the bottom:)
"Assisi Is Miraculously Rescued. As the saint raised the Sun of justice above the walls that the enemies were already attacking, it seemed that a lightning bolt suddenly resounded. They were all turned over, knocked down, and blinded."

Hi Micki,

I'll continue posting anonymous until I regularly view your site like I want. Also, http://saints.sqpn.com provided good information on each saint's life. Bless you for this holy source of inspiration.

Tom

P.S. Thanks to everyone who earlier welcomed me back to the Church :)

Also, Tom, I just saw your note about coming back to the Church. Welcome home! You are in my prayers.

God bless,
Stephanie

Tom - Please come however you want...I do appreciate though when you sign "anonymous" with your name. I'm glad you find sqpm.com educational, so do I.

The Prayer Group also appreciates your presence and words shared.

Stephanie - It would be a wonderful share to know why you choose the beautiful name of Claire.

Regina Clare - Welcome and Happy Feast Day to you also.

PS.....yup, spelling error. To Stephanie, chose is what I meant to spell.

My husband and I chose Claire because, aside from the fact that it was the ONLY girl's name we could agree on, I really love St.
Clare. We live in a diocese where the Poor Clares have a monastery. Before meeting my husband, I had visited them thinking that may be my vocation. Turns out, God had other plans for me. I am happy and thankful to have named my first daughter after such an incredible Saint. Thanks for asking.

God bless,
Stephanie
