Meditating on the lives of the saints is a way to get a better vision of what it looks like to live out the way of Christ. Today, as we celebrate the Feast of Saint Clare, we have a particularly rich life upon which to meditate. Clare was a close friend and collaborator with St. Francis, and founded her own religious order with its own rule, the first such rule known to have been written by a woman. Read this hagiography of St. Clare and meditate on what her life might teach you in the living of your own: http://www.ewtn.com/library/MARY/CLARA.HTM
As an additional practice, try for one day to imitate Clare’s dedication to silence. Speak only when spoken to and try as much as possible to keep from talking.
