Frair Rick Martignetti OFM presided over the two days in honor of Saint Clare. He gave a beautiful homily on August 10th on Clare's idea of looking into the mirror and seeing Jesus Crucified and than instead of putting on rings and fancy clothes to put on the virtues that Jesus endorses, humility, compassion and love.
For the Mass Sunday, Friar Rick, spoke about being present to what really matters so that we have a transformation and come to know Jesus more closely.
