Just released--my new book on St Clare

Today's the feast of St Clare, so it's an appropriate day to mention my new book about her. It's part of our Encounter the Saints series, beautifully illustrated by Sr Mary Joseph.
I learned a lot about Clare in writing the book. What impressed me the most was her great love of poverty. All her life she fought for the "privilege of poverty"--of owning nothing! She had to contend with cardinals and popes, but on the day before she died, she finally obtained this privilege as part of the Rule of her order.
