Opening prayer to St. Clare of Assisi:

Gracious Saint Clare, who fulfilled your womanhood by a life of love in  prayer and penance, help us to fulfill our destiny that we may one day greet you in Heaven.  You who were consoled at your death by a vision of Christ and His Mother, obtain for us the grace that we may die under the special protection of God and enter into the life and bliss you now enjoy.

Obtain for us the graces we now implore: (state your intention here…)

Have pity on us who struggle, on us who mourn, and win for us the favors of God so that after this life we may come home to Him who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
