Saint Clare is known for founding the Poor Clare Nuns at San Damiano and leading the group for 40 years. As she lay dying in bed, too ill to attend Mass, a moving image of the church services she was mission began to play on the wall of her room. Because of this miracle, she became the patron saint of television. The beautiful St. Clare statue makes a lovely gift for any young girl in need of a strong female role model. The statue is sized perfectly for display upon a bureau.
