St. Clare of Assisi Novena - Day 4
Annot Vena to Saint Clair Day four. From a letter to intrude of brew. This labor of ours is brief. But. The reward is eternal. Let the noises of the fleeting world and its shadow not confound you. Let the empty spectres of the deceiving world not drive you mad. Shut your ears to the whispers of hell and strong breath down its attempts against you. Willingly bear adverse evils and let provident goods not puff you up. For the one requires faith. The other demands it. What you promised, God faithfully render and he will repay you.
