Walk in silence the Via San Damiano to this monastery. Breath in and out and sing within to th Most Highest as pure as Saint Clara and her sisters did. And still do in us when we meditate her live, sayings and writings.

Very important historical church. Enjoyed learning more about the Clares and St Clare. Was lucky to have a Franciscan give us a tour.
