Saint Clare had it all: money, a loving family, and her faith. Her father wanted the best for her and planned for her to marry according to the family's social standing. Her father's choice for her was not only handsome, but also of aristocratic birth. Clare desired to satisfy her family, but she had heard St. Francis speak of Jesus' love. Her heart yearned to share in Christ's poverty, to live among the poor and to serve them in her everyday life, just like Francis, but she couldn't since she was the wife of a nobleman.
In this book, you'll learn how Clare fled her own existence to embark on a bold new adventure in holiness for women, inspired by Francis' love of the poor Christ. The Poor Clares are the descendants of the Order she created.
This remarkable narrative is told in a vibrantly illustrated Shoujo-Manga style graphic novel for children ages 9 to 12.
