Claire Marie

Yes, I know it is the feast day of St. Francis, but first a little more on Claire, Clare, Chiara.

O Claire, endowed with so many titles of clarity! Clear [clara] even before your conversion, clearer [clarior] in your manner of living, exceedingly clear [praeclarior] in your enclosed life, and brilliant [clarissima] in splendor after the course of your mortal life. In Claire, a clear mirror is given to the entire world.

--Pope Alexander IV
