"Place your mind before the mirror of eternity,
place your soul in the brightness of glory.....
that you too may feel what His friends feel in
tasting the hidden sweetness which God has kept...
for those who love Him."

Third Letter of St. Clare to St. Agnes of Prague
"What a great and praiseworthy exchange,
to leave the things of time for those of eternity,
to choose the things of heaven
for the goods of the earth."


First Letter of St. Clare to St. Agnes of Prague
"What you hold now, hold fast; what you do now, do henceforth and never abandon, but hasten with swift pace and light step and unstumbling feet so that even your steps stir up no dust, securely, joyously, promptly
and prudently on the path of happiness."

Second Letter of St. Clare to St. Agnes of Prague
HOME
"May the Lord Himself
who has given [you] a good beginning
give [you] increase and also give final
perseverance throughout all time."

The Testament of St. Clare
"Cling with all your heart to Him whose beauty all the heavenly hosts behold forever, whose love inflames our love, whose contemplation is our refreshment, whose graciousness is our delight....."

Fourth Letter of St. Clare to St. Agnes of Prague
Great was our joy as another young woman, following the example of our Mother St. Clare, recently exchanged her finest gown for the Cross-form Habit
of our Franciscan Order.
The Great Exchange
Please join us in thanking God
for the gift of another new novice,
and pray that many others
will hear and respond to
Christ's invitation to embrace
our Poor Clare Form of Life.
"Love Him in complete surrender
who has given Himself up entirely for your love."
