Petitioning saints for help is something that is usually seen in Catholicism, but there are plenty of magical traditions that blend Catholic aspects with aspects of paganism, voodoo, or other faiths. Saint Clare, or Santa Clara, is a popular saint for removing blocks in your life, clearing your mind, and reducing your anxiety. She can be petitioned whenever you are experiencing difficulties or fear.
The History of Saint Clare
Clare was born into a life of privilege. The child of wealthy Italian nobility, she followed in her devoutly Catholic mother's footsteps by being extremely pious, even as a young child. She became of marriageable age, and, instead of marrying a boy from another wealthy noble family, chose to join an order of nuns. She dressed in all of her fineries, and, with only one handmaiden for company, went to dress in rags and shave off her beautiful blonde hair.
When her father found out she had left, he was enraged. He tried to bring her back by force, but, when she pulled off her veil and showed him that she had shaved her head, he relented. She eventually founded an order of nuns, for whom she was an example of piety and humility.
Clare was so pious and humble, in fact, that the Pope wanted to have her canonized immediately upon her death. Even today, she is a shining example of the virtues of courage, devotion, and faith.
The Miracles Of Saint Clare
Throughout her life, Saint Clare performed many miracles that helped to show the power of her faith and her devotion to God.
One of the most famous miracles associated with Saint Clare took place when she was living in a convent. The city she lived in was being attacked by enemies, and the people were frightened for their safety. Saint Clare prayed to God for protection, and when the attackers came to the doors of the convent, they were unable to enter.
Instead, they saw a vision of Saint Clare holding the monstrance, which is a container for the consecrated host, and a blazing star shining from the monstrance. The attackers were so frightened by the vision that they retreated, and the city was saved from harm.
Another miracle associated with Saint Clare involved her healing powers. She was known to have cured many people who were suffering from various ailments, such as eye diseases, simply by laying her hands on them and praying.
People who witnessed these healings were amazed, and many of them came to believe that Saint Clare was a saint sent from God to help them.
Petitioning Saint Clare
Saint Clare showed remarkable bravery and grace under fire for the entirety of her life. Call upon Saint Clare for aid when working for purification or to remove blockages, and let her peaceful faith and humility work for you.
Use Saint Clara Floor Wash, to mop your home from the back to the front, and ask her to remove any obstacles to your home's peace and happiness. If you need to clear your mind and alleviate anxiety, wear a little Saint Clara Sachet Powder, or apply some Saint Clara Perfume.
Blessed medals with the figure of Saint Clare on them are powerful talismans for protection. To help prevent psychic attacks or overcome addictions, dress and light a white candle on a Monday while requesting Saint Clare's help. Some people choose to set up permanent altars for Saint Clare in their homes, with candles, pictures, or statues of her.
In addition to helping to remove blockages and ease your mind, Saint Clare may also be petitioned for situations involving embroidery, telephones, televisions, or healing from eye disease. Dress a blue candle with Saint Clara Oil or Healing Oil, and ask for her help when dealing with disorders involving the eyes or vision.
A Prayer to Saint Clare
The feast day of Saint Clare is celebrated on August 11. When offering a prayer to Saint Clare, light a stick of Saint Clara Incense and sit somewhere peaceful. Try to clear your mind, focus on your breathing, and calm yourself. If you are working toward a specific goal, light an appropriately-colored candle dressed with Saint Clara Oil. When you are ready, say the following prayer...
O glorious Saint Clare!
God has given you the power of working miracles continually,
and the favor of answering the prayers of those who invoke your assistance in misfortune, anxiety, and distress;
we beseech you, obtain for us from Jesus,
through Mary, His Blessed Mother,
what we beg of you so fervently and hopefully,
if it be for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our souls.
Saint Clare Pray For Us Amen.
