St. Clare started an order of sisters known as the Poor Clares. Once, a band of Saracen soldiers was attacking Clare’s monastery. Clare carried a monstrance with the Holy Eucharist to one of the towers of the monastery and held it up. Rays of light came out of the monstrance, blinding the attacking Saracens! The Saracens were terrified and ran away. God worked a miracle for Clare and her nuns through His True Presence in the Eucharist.
