MYSTICISM: The Blessing Attributed To Saint Clare

saint clare

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.  May he show his face to you and be merciful to you.  May he turn his countenance to you and give you peace.

I, Clare, a handmaid of Christ, a little plant of our holy Father Francis, a sister and mother of you and the other Poor Sisters, although unworthy, ask our Lord Jesus Christ, through his mercy and through the intercession of his most holy mother, Mary, of blessed Michael the Archangel, and all the holy angels of God, and of all his men and women saints, that the Heavenly Father give you and confirm for you this most holy blessing in Heaven and on Earth.  On Earth, may he increase his grace and virtues among his servants and handmaids of his Church Militant.  In Heaven, may he exalt and glorify you in his Church Triumphant among all his men and women saints.

I bless you in my life and after my death as much as I can and more than I can with all the blessings with which the Father of mercies has and will have blessed his sons and daughters in Heaven and on Earth.

Amen.


Always be lovers of God and your souls and the souls of your sisters, and always be eager to observe what you have promised the Lord.
May the Lord be with you always and, wherever you are, may you be with him always.

Amen.
