Thanks for the picture and reference to Bl. Chiara, Father.

I first learned of her brief life a few weeks ago on holiday, in Sirmione parish church, leafing through a magazine about Ven. Benedetta Bianchi Porro. Those promoting the cause of Ven. Benedetta congratulated Bl. Chiara's supporters and hoped their girl would catch up soon!

Hmmm, it used to be coppers looking young that brought on the intimation of ageing, then (for Catholics) realsing the priest you'e calling "Father" is young enough to be your son, but a beata young enough to be your daughter is pushing it.

But more seriously, Father, how about telling us something about Bl. Chiara?
