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, Satellite Broadcasts and other miraculous communication-at-a-distance devices.
Clare of Assisi is also the saint to turn to if you are plagued with eye disorders. Which you probably will be if you’ve been staring too much at all your electronic devices.
