Hoping to discover more clearly your life's vocation? Look to Saint Clare, who wanted “only Jesus Christ, and to live by the gospel”. This was an important focus for the February 25-27, 2011 weekend of reflection.
Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation, significant to Clare’s spirituality, were important to the journey of growing in union with Christ while discerning God’s call to be happy and of service to others. St Peter Church, part of Holy Family Catholic Community, Fond du Lac, WI was an important destination for Saturday’s music ministry.
‘Bright in name, more brilliant in life, most brilliant in character”, Saint Clare’s personal letters to Agnes of Prague and Scripture were important to personal prayer time e.g.
1 Corinthians 15:35-50 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.
Hebrews 11:4-31 Therefore there was born even of one man and him as good as dead at that, as many descendents as the stars of heaven in number, and innumberable as the sand which is by the seashore.
Revelation 12:1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
Matthew 2:1-19 Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.
2 Peter 1:19-21 So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.
His kindness fills one to the brim; his sweetness is in overflowing measure. The recollection of him shines with a soft light. -St. Clare
