St. Clare Joins St. Francis and His Brothers

 St. Clare's Tunic and Mantle on display at San Damiano Assisi, Italy

On Palm Sunday, in the year 1212 A.D., a young noblewoman of Assisi, Clare di Favarone, attended Mass at the cathedral of San Rufino where she received her palm from the hand of the bishop himself. That night she left home secretly and went to the chapel of St. Mary of the Angels, the Portiuncula. There, St. Francis himself witnessed her vows to live the Gospel life of poverty, chastity, and obedience. From that moment till her death she was a true Bride of the Poor Christ, the most faithful daughter of St. Francis
