Details: Join Bret Thoman as he skillfully weaves the known facts of St. Clare of Assisi s life with imaginative passages that bring the reader into the profoundly spiritual world of the Light from the Cloister. Hailing from an aristocratic or Major family, Clare continually in imitation of Our Lord and Francis sought to make herself lesser or minor. In the process, in another of God s divine paradoxes, she became a giant, not only of her Age, but of all time. Tenaciously attached to poverty, St. Clare became rich as only the saints are; docile and obedient, she stood up to her aristocratic family and, later, princes of the Church in following the path upon which God had set her; frail and vulnerable, she caused Saracen invaders to turn tail and run . . . merely by prostrating herself before the Blessed Sacrament; and though not learned in either theology or canon law, she became the first woman to write a Rule for a new religious community. Just as with his stirring narrative of the life of St. Francis, Saint Francis of Assisi: Passion, Poverty & the Man Who Transformed the Church, Thoman draws upon his profound knowledge of original sources, his familiarity with the places where these two great founders lived and breathed and changed the world, and his own Franciscan spirituality to bring to life, like never before, the story of St. Clare. St. Clare truly was a light from the cloister. Meet her as never before in these pages and, in what is sure to be a profoundly spiritual reading experience, let her light shine upon you.
