The saints who shape our lives

I enjoyed your news on your family and lifetime of decision.
I too have many stories that I pass on to my family and friends.

Thank you for the summer issue of Companions in Prayer. It is always inspiring for me to read your newsletters. I enjoy your remaks about your own life and that of St. Clare. I will celebrate August 11 in some special way – prayer and doing somethin nice for other people.
When I realized the focus of this newsletter is St. Clare, I was even more interested, because I really haven’t known her very well. I was surprised to learn about her — a woman who discovered and developed her own unique life pathway of faith and invited other women to share that pathway — and only on her death bed did she learn that the Church had approved it. How brave she must have been, and how clear about her personal mission and purpose.
I hope others, like me, will think about the shape and style of their lives, and be grateful for the mysterious, unique and powerful ways God has drawn us all into Life.
