While weaving together Clare’s story and Francis’s story, Margaret Carney draws special attention to Clare’s significant contribution to the Franciscan world in the many years following Francis’s death. Far from merely reflecting Francis’s light, Clare had her own charism, a gift bestowed by the Spirit of the Lord and given to her in a fullness and forcefulness that was hers alone.
This book will introduce St. Clare of Assisi to those who do not know her and those who wish to know her better. It leads the reader from Clare’s birth to her death. While taking account of modern scholarship, Sr. Margaret Carney tells the story of this medieval woman in a way readers today can understand.
