Sr. Clare

Miguel Urbano sent this simple poem dedicated to Sr. Clare, “to whom I am humbly devoted and who is the mediator in my prayers to the Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary.”

'Twas your motto in life: All or nothing;
to Jesus you offered your heart,
and full of joy and passion,
you consecrated yourself as a bride.

And you lived faithfully in love,
Paradise being your song,
alone for Christ alone, in union,
possessed by His infinite love.

The habit you reverently embraced;
to the youth you dedicated all,
and the sick you sought to console.

Humbly and devotedly I write to you:
May your soul watch over me from Heaven
for, with God, through your example, I live and die.

*The poem has been translated from the original Spanish.
