Sr. Clare's Writings

Sr. Clare

Sure, there are acts of obedience that are hard for me, but I know that they are always for my good.

When I Was Wee

Instead of preparing our Christmas list this year, let’s prepare our hearts so that Our Lord may be born in them too. I am sure that this is the best present we can give Him for His birthday.

Sister Clare

Coming back from the first Rosary at Dawn, we had adoration. I read a sentence that helps me every day when I get up. It said, “Ad majora natus sum,” which literally translates to “I was born for greater things.”

Must Do's

Five pieces of advice and a goal, that is, to have a free heart in order to do God’s will.

These may seem like little things, but sometimes they can be very hard to do. But have courage! God, seeing your good intention, is going to help you out.

A brief prayer in Sr. Clare’s handwriting

Sr. Clare with Children before the Blessed Sacrament

Children are constantly asking me, “Sr. Clare, when will you take us over to see Jesus in your chapel?”

Half-joking, as always, but completely serious, as always, Sr. Clare wrote her letter to the Three Kings in 2016.


Boys and girls, we should stop and think. How many hours do I spend watching the TV?

Hna. Clare rezando

In prayer I understood that I have to turn everything I do, especially getting up at five o’clock in the morning, into a “sacrifice of praise.”

Siervas rezando ante la Guardiana de la fe

Being with Her and having the desire to see Her happy, it is like you feel the cold, but at the same time don’t.

You can also be a saint!!!


We think about how our sins offend Jesus and we are sorry for them: "I'm sorry, Jesus. I won't do it again."

I don't know how to explain the joy and the burning desire I have to suffer for the Lord. Nothing seems enough for me.


The battle begins… starts right now. Who will win? Charity or envy?

Sr. Clare postrada en la Misa de los votos perpetuos

Sometimes I imagine one of those old, small churches in the middle of a little village in Spain. Inside the church is the tabernacle, and in the tabernacle, the Eucharist. Hardly anyone goes there to visit Our Lord. Sometimes I sneak away to that little village...


Before I did everything for selfish reasons, for my own pleasure – I lived for myself. That’s just stupid. God created us for much more.

Hna. Clare in Jacksonville 2008

In these outlines, Sr. Clare has unintentionally left us her personal path to growth in virtue and her own battle against mediocrity.


"This is what my heart has always desired, and the reason why no human love, plan, or thing has ever been able to fill it."

hna. Clare meditando en Tierra Santa

Ask the Lord what He wants from you. STOP doing what you want and what feels good, and START doing the will of God… it is there that you’ll find true happiness.
