Clare of Assisi On Spiritual Balance

Clare of Assisi, born Chiara Offreduccio (July 16, 1194 – August 11, 1253)

There are some who do not pray nor make sacrifices; there are many who live solely for the idolatry of their senses. There should be compensation. There should be someone who prays and makes sacrifices for those who do not do so. If this spiritual balance is not established, earth would be destroyed by the evil one.
