When the Saracens were attacking Assisi and were marching toward the convent, St. Clare who was very sick at the time, asked for help to carry a vessel containing the Blessed Sacrament to the entrance of the convent. There she prayed and held up the Blessed Sacrament. The Saracens fled in fear.
St. Clare of Assisi\’s feast day is Aug 11 in the new calendar and Aug 12 in the traditional calendar.
Since we already made a monstrance, Elizabeth and I decided to make this on a little different and more \”old fashioned\” looking. We used light brown felt, yellow felt, white, and off white felt to make this ornament.
See the parts in the picture below:
We also used a yellow and orange permanent sharpie marker to add color to the rays coming from the host.
We added a looped thread and hung it on our Liturgical Tree!
St. Clare of Assisi, pray for us!
