A Place at the Divine Banquet

August 11

August 11

Feast of St. Clare, Virgin (1193 – 1253)

 “Happy indeed is she who is granted a place at the divine banquet, for she may cling with her inmost heart to him whose beauty eternally awes the blessed hosts of heaven; to him whose love inspires love, whose contemplation refreshes, whose generosity satisfies, whose gentleness delights, whose memory shines sweetly as the dawn; to him whose fragrance revives the dead, and whose glorious vision will bless all the citizens of that heavenly Jerusalem.”

                                                                                               - St. Clare

 Today’s Reflection:

I will take this meditation given by St. Clare to the Blessed Sacrament and allow it to penetrate the interior recesses of my heart so as to draw nearer the One who has invited me to his divine banquet.
