During the first week of November 2018 for All Saints, St. John the Baptist Parish in Brescia, Italy, displayed panels of the “Santi della Porta Accanto” exhibition, in English “Saints Next Door.” This exhibition was made echoing an expression of Pope Francis in Gaudete et Exsultate, his Apostolic exhortation in which he speaks about every Christian’s call to holiness. Among those Saints Next Door, not canonized but who have left a mark and example, was our Sr. Clare.
To make the most of this opportunity with their catechism groups, the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother made worksheets for the children they teach at St. Apollonio Parish and in Pieve. You can preview one of the worksheets we prepared for kids in order for them to make an effort to learn the most important facts about the young witnesses of faith they got to know through the exhibition.
Thanks to the exhibition, Sr. Clare’s testimony is reaching the lives of many people, especially youth, in Italy.
