O Holy Spirit,Fire of Divine Love,Come to us through Mary’s Immaculate Heart!

Padre Pio said: “It would be easier for the world to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.” “At times during the Mass I am consumed by the fire of Divine Love. My face seems to burn.”

Pope John Paul II once remarked that there was no concern, suffering, anguish or discouragement of others which did not find an echo in the hearts of St. Clare and her spiritual progeny. This is the great work which we as Poor Clare Nuns are privileged to continue even today, gathering into the heart of our enclosed life of prayer all the needs and hurts of the world. We invite you to join us in enlisting St. Clare’s intercession for the sick and suffering of our time, especially those who are afflicted with cancer and other terminal illnesses.

O God,you who filled the heart of St. Clare
with love for the mysteries of the Cross and caused her to rejoice to share
in the sufferings of Christ,grant that through her example and prayers
all who suffer in mind, heart or body may find serenity in their suffering,
faith in time of trial, hope in Your healing mercy and be given a share
in the everlasting light and love of Your heavenly kingdom.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
