What greater image of a happy death could there be than this? St. Clare and her nuns gathered at the foot of the bed of the deceased St. Francis praying for his soul. Depicted here with a stunning sense of calm and tranquility the muted grief of holy people grieve the loss of their much loved saint and spiritual father St. Francis. An image that speaks volumes to the soul in times of both joy and sadness.
