St CLARE

Christian Saint

Also known as CLARE-OF-ASSISI

Patron Saint of Telephones, Television and Telecommunications, also Cell Phones, Satellite Broadcasts and... Eye Disorders

One of the first followers of St FRANCIS-OF-ASSISI, she was the founder of the Poor Clares, an order of nuns existing only on alms. They crop up rather a lot in our Saints list so you should pay attention.

When she became bedridden, she claimed she could see and hear mass as if she was there.

This amazing occurrence was picked up by the Pope in 1958, who made her the Patron Saint of Television and other miraculous communication-at-a-distance devices.
