Prayer to Santa Clara
The prayer to Santa Clara is a very effective invocation thanks to the high virtues that her spirituality has. Clare of Assisi does not delay in attending to her devotees in the same way that she did when she was on the earthly plane, where she stood out for her virtues of simplicity and submission. Both her followers and the testimonies of those who knew her in her life describe her as a smiling, enthusiastic, cheerful and kind soul, whose main objective in life was love and service to others.
Who is Saint Clare?
Santa Clara was a nun of Italian nationality, who enlisted in the faith of Christ until she became a faithful collaborator of Saint Francis of Assisi, coming to found in her company the second Franciscan order or Poor Clare sisters. Her work has been transcendental in the Catholic Church by becoming the first and only woman to write a rule of religious life for women.
His writings contemplate a different content from the traditional monastic rules, demonstrating his capacity for sacrifice and dedication in the name of faith and love towards God and towards his fellow men. His canonization occurred just two years after his death, thanks to Pope Alexander IV. Currently, his mortal remains are in the crypt of the Basilica of Santa Clara de Asís.
History of Santa Clara
It tells the story of this self-sacrificing saint, who in the time of Frederick II, king of Sicily and Jerusalem and Holy Roman Emperor, waged a fierce war between the monarch and the Pope, for which he sent against the Papal States Mohammedan archers, who had no fear of excommunication at all. The year was 1240, and from the top of the fortress of Nocera, very close to Assisi, the Saracens fell on the valley of Espoleto, heading against the convent of San Damián.
If the Muslims triumphed and managed to enter the monastery, certain death was predicted for the nuns, but they would not only suffer that end, probably before that they would be victims of rape as used to happen in such warlike confrontations. At the most critical moment, all the very frightened nuns gathered around Clara, who was bedridden, since she was suffering from a very serious illness.
Clara, displaying her deep courage and faith, asked to be taken to the door of the convent, she had the silver chalice brought to her where the Blessed Sacrament was reserved and in deep prayer she fell on her knees before Him.
Her prayer was very deep and desperate, she cried out for the protection of the God of heaven, so that neither she nor her sisters would be abandoned to their fate. Legend has it that from that chalice a voice with a childish tone sprouted that said: "I will always guard you", immediately the prayer intensified until the Saracens lifted the siege of the monastery, retiring to another place.
Another story of Santa Clara tells that a year later, in June 1241, a similar miracle occurred, once again Federico's troops, led by Vital de Aversa, attacked the city of Assisi ready to end everything. Santa Clara and her nuns accustomed to the power of prayer prostrated themselves before the Blessed Sacrament praying with the deep faith that characterized them and the attackers left the place for no apparent reason. This event is celebrated in Assisi as a special national holiday.
But Santa Clara's signs of strength did not stop there. She in turn had a years-long struggle with Pope Gregory IX motivated by her vow of poverty. It happened that the pontiff wanted to convince her to take some of her assets for the benefit of the convent, as the rest of the religious orders did, but she absolutely refused.
So much was the insistence of the Pope, that he even told her that although she thought she was tied to her vote, he had the power and the obligation to untie it. But Clara, with the humility that characterized her, told her that she could release her from her sins, but not from the obligation to follow Our Lord Jesus Christ. It should be noted that, only two days before Clara died, she obtained from Pope Innocent IV the right to be and always remain poor.
