St. Francis Meditation Ten: “Clare”

I am blogging a daily meditation for the participants (and others!)
of my class on St. Francis…

13After St. Francis’s death, the Pope wanted St. Clare to give up her vow of poverty.  She answered him by saying:

“Holy Father, absolve me of my sins, but I have no desire for a dispensation from following Christ.”

Ask God to show you who or what is asking you to give up following Christ.  How can you answer these temptations?


April describes herself as a Red Letter Christian who writes about scripture and spiritual disciplines. See her latest book, James in the Suburbs: The Disorderly Parable of the Epistle of James. Great for an individual read or group Bible studies! You can follow her blog by clicking on the three dots in upper right hand of this page and scrolling down.
