Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Clare's second letter to Agnes. To the daughter of the King of kings, handmaid of the Lord of lords, most worthy spouse of Jesus Christ and therefore, very distinguished queen, the Lady Agnes, Clare, useless and unworthy handmaid of the Poor Ladies, sends her greetings and the prayer that Agnes may always live in the utmost poverty. Clare thanks the one who liberally bestows grace, from whom every best and perfect gift is believed to come, because he has adorned Agnes with such a good reputation founded upon your virtues and has made her shine with the honors of so much perfection.

Keywords: Agnes; Clare's second letter; Jesus Christ; poverty; prayer
