St Clare was the daughter of nobles and found her calling with God. She was highly influenced by Francis of Assisi and confided in him that she would like to devote her life to God. She founded the Convent of the Poor Clares, a religious order of nuns who settled near the Franciscans throughout Europe.
Later in life, when she was too ill to attend Mass, it is said that the image of the mass would appear on her convent cell wall. For that reason, she has become the Patron Saint of Television.
