Happy Feast of St. Clare!

Founder of the Poor Clares...
General Bad-ass
(i.e. one of my favourite stories EVER about a Saint, Muslims invading in the crusades, she grabs the monstrance with the Host in it and parades it around and basically knocks the invaders out just by the sight of our Lord.  Yes. Please.)

And most recently...
Patron of TV....


Blind and on her deathbed, Clare was able to witness the Mass on her cell wall, thus prophesying EWTN and Mother Angelica.  Uh...thanks? Clare...

Dear St. Clare,
Being that you are in charge of all things to do with TV, please grant me this favour.  A 24 hour Toddler's and Tiaras only network.  You're the bomb.  Love, Frank.
