FINAL PERSEVERANCE


Procession to Eternal Life

"Draw me after you, let us run in the fragrance of your anointing oils, O heavenly Spouse! I will run, and not grow tired, until you bring me into the cellar of wine, until your left arm is under my head and right happily embraces me, and you kiss me with the most sweet kiss of your mouth."   - Letter of St. Clare
"I bend my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, with the supporting merits of the glorious Virgin, his holy Mother Mary, and of our most blessed Father Francis and of all the saints, that the Lord himself who gave a good beginning would give increase and also give final perseverance throughout all time. Amen."     - Testament of Our Mother Saint Clare
