Television Workers / Clare of Assisi, 1194–1255, Feast Day: August 11

Founder of her own order of nuns, together with Saint Francis, Clare challenged the religious authorities of their day by leading a youthful resurgence of spirituality, embracing poverty and simplicity. A mystic, Clare viewed midnight mass one Christmas from her bed and was able to correctly recount all the details of the service. This made her the patron of television.

Other patronages: telegraphs, telephones; embroiderers, gilders, needle workers

Invoked: against eye disease
