Daily Reading for August 10
What you hold, may you [always] hold,
What you do, may you [always] do,
and never abandon.
But with swift pace [and] light steps
stir up no dust,
on the path of prudent happiness.
Letter 2 of Clare of Assisi, quoted in Peaceweavers: Medieval Religious Women, Volume 2, edited by John A. Nichols and Lillian Thomas Shank (Cistercian Publications, 1987).
