Desmond O'brien, B. J. (2014). Clare of Assisi : A Living Flame of Love. Retrieved from

I used the image of Paul Simon's "Dangling Conversation". This expresses the way we so often fail to meet each other or God. Clare, by her openness, came to know God and in her spiritual friendship brought others into that space where they could find God and themselves. A new conversation was opened up between God and the broken.

Clare of Assisi was a contemplative woman who radiated gentleness and love to a broken world and became a beacon of light for a whole generation. Here we hope to come to experience that gentleness and love that moved St. Clare.
