O Glorious St Clare! God has given you the power of working miracles continually and the favour of answering the prayers of those who invoke your assistance in misfortune, anxiety and distress.
We beseech you, obtain from Jesus through Mary His Blessed Mother, what we beg of you fervently and hopefully (mention your petition). If it be the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our souls. Amen.
God of mercy, You inspired St Clare with the love of poverty. By the help of her prayers, may we follow Christ in poverty in spirit and come to the joyful vision of your glory in the kingdom of heaven. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit. One God forever and ever. Amen.
Novena to Saint Clare of Assisi
Dear Saint Clare, as a young girl, you imitated your mother’s love for the heart of your native Assisi. Inspired by the preaching of St Francis of Assisi, who sang enthusiastically of His Lord Jesus and Lady Poverty, you gave your life to Jesus at nineteen years of age, allowing St Francis to cut off your beautiful hair and invest you with the Franciscan habit. All through your life you offered your great suffering for your sisters, the Poor Clares, and the conversion of souls.
You greatly aided St Francis with his new order, carrying on his spirit in the Franciscan after his death. Most of all, you had a deep love of Jesus In the most Blessed Sacrament, which fuelled your vocation to love and care for the poor.
Please pray for me (mention your request) that I will seek to keep Jesus as my first love, as you did. Help me grow in love of the Blessed Sacrament to care for the poor, and to offer my whole life to God. Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of St Clare. Through her intercession, please hear and answer my prayer/s in the name of Jesus your Son. Amen.
Say 3 times the Our Father, Hail Mary and the Glory Be
Our Father, Who is in heaven, Holy is Your Name; Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver as from evil. Amen
Hail Mary, full of grace, Our Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Pray for us St Clare! That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
