St. Clare

Mission San Juan Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano, California

One of St. Clare's attributes is the lamp-like vessel holding the Eucharistic Host as seen here, a reference to the story of her turning back troops who were attacking her convent in Assisi. As usual, the saint is dressed in the habit of the order she founded.
