St. Clare of Assisi: Light from the Cloister

Bret Thoman, OFS
Saint Benedict Press/Tan Books, 239 pages

St. Clare was an early disciple of St. Francis of Assisi who went on to found a religious community for women, later known as the Order of Poor Clares, based on his rule. This volume beautifully presents her life and her story of faith, with particular attention given to her personal virtues and her fraternal relationship with Francis. This volume thus serves both as an inspiring biography and as sound spiritual reading. Bret Thoman’s eloquent narrative enables the reader not only to know about St. Clare, but also to know her more intimately, an experience many of us should find enriching.

Order: Saint Benedict Press/Tan Books, Amazon
