Saint Clare was a friend of St. Francis of Assisi. Inspired by his holiness, she cut her hair, renounced worldly pursuits, fled an unwanted engagement, and founded an order of nuns, which has come to be known as the Poor Clares.
Clare was devoted to the Eucharist, and is shown carrying a monstrance because she once warded away the soldiers of Frederick II at the gates of her convent by displaying the Blessed Sacrament and kneeling in prayer.
She is the patron saint of television, because it is reported that when she was too ill to attend Mass, she was able to see and hear the Mass on the wall of her room. The Catholic cable network, EWTN, was founded by a Poor Clare nun, Mother Angelica.
