This beautiful medal shows St Clare with her hands clasped in prayer while gazing at a monstrance. The inscription is in French and reads “Sancta Clare P.P.N. (Priez Pour Nouse)” (St Clare Pray for Us) The reverse shows a wreath of roses.
When St Clare was a girl, she was so struck by the preaching of St Francis of Assisi that she confided her desire to live for God to him. He became her teacher and friend. She ran away from home with her cousin to become a nun and was later received into religious life by St Francis. She founded a religious order called the Poor Clares that is still in existence today. St Clare loved needle work, music, and caring for others.
