The Grace of Work
United with the poor Christ, Saint Clare recognized that all that we have and are is received as gift from the Giver of gifts; hence, all gifts, both spiritual and physical, are entrusted to our safe-keeping and prudent care for the building up of Christ's Body the Church.
The sisters work at all the ordinary tasks of daily life, whether it be cooking, sewing, bookkeeping, maintenance or household chores.
