Muñequitos Monasticos: Poor Clares

The Poor Clares, the sisters of the Friars Minor. In 1212, at the advice of St. Francis, Saint Clare founded a community in San Damiano, Italy. Over the course of time various observances emerged.
This caricature is based on a pic I found, don't know which observance or community.
Update: I found out that the pic was of Capuchin Poor Clares

  1. Wow, beautiful it captures the joy I see in just about every religious I encounter. Now you should do one of the SMMCs. (hint hint)

  2. Peace and Good!
    I admire and love the Poor Clare Sisters!
    I pray daily by them, and sometimes I require their prayers.
    I love her poverty, her barefootedness!
