Feast of Saint Clare of Assisi

Good morning. The Parable of the Good Samaritan from today's Gospel shows us how we are to live our lives. It is indeed quite a challenge. As Christians we are asked to give of ourselves for others, not superficially, but totally. The story of the Good Samaritan leaves no room for question; we are to give of ourselves to all who need. We see this total gift of self in marriage, in particular we see this total giving of self among older couples where one is called upon to care for the other partner often making considerable sacrifices for the other. Our Saint for today, Saint Clare of Assisi reminds us of how we are to love, "Totally love Him, Who gave Himself totally for your love." May everyone we encounter today know of His love in us. Make a great day!

Today we recall the good life, gifts, and works of Saint Clare of Assisi.
