Saint Clare of Assisi
The story of St Clare is one of great love for both God and neighbour. In this simply-told biography aimed at children, Clare is shown as someone who followed God’s call all her life long. From growing up in a wealthy family and then abandoning everything to live a life dedicated to God, she founded an order of sisters and even defended her city from invaders. Whether having it read to them, or discovering the saint for themselves, small children will love this tale of a caring and loving young girl who lived out the teachings of the gospel.
