Saint Clare of the Cross of Montefalco
Berengario di Donadio
Saint Clare (c. 1268-1308) was abbess of the monastery of the Holy Cross in Montefalco, in the diocese of Spoleto. At the time of her death, Berengario was vicar general of the bishop of Spoleto. He had never seen her or visited her monastery, but he came to know of Clare’s high reputation for holiness. After her death Berengario decided to carry out an investigation into her life and miracles, to preserve the value of testimonies “and in order that the Roman Church would have sufficient material at its disposal, should it decide to undertake a canonical process.” In reading this Life of Saint Clare, special attention should be paid to those pages in which Berengario tries to give expression to Clare’s spirituality and her teachings on grace, the way of virtue, union with God, love of truth, and kindness to others. The reason for this advice is the danger that those pages may be at least partially overlooked because of the greater speace given to the story of prophetic experience,s miracles, and “vision.” These pages provide a glimpse of the holiness of this “very great little lady” which will make us desire to know her better. In shrink wrap.
