Assisi si prepara, come ogni anno, a celebrare la Festa di S. Chiara d’Assisi, patrona della Televisione. L’11 Agosto 2012 presso la Basilica di S. Chiara.
Nella tradizione popolare due sono le storie più celebri sulla vita della Santa. La prima la narra difendere Assisi dalle truppe saracene al comando di Federico II, accecandole, grazie all’esposizione dell’ostensorio fuori dalle mura del convento.

Ma è la seconda storia a renderla patrona di televisione e telecomunicazioni. Leggenda vuole che una notte di Natale Chiara fosse malata e costretta a letto, impossibilitata a seguire la messa celebrata da San Francesco. E, sul giaciglio, ebbe la visione della funzione.

Inoltre, la Festa di S. Chiara di quest’anno sarà il culmine dei festeggiamenti per gli 800 anni della Consacrazione della Santa. E così, oltre alla Novena (dal 2 al 9 Agosto 2012) ed alla Concelebrazione Solenne, presso la Basilica di S. Chiara a partire dalle ore 11:00 dell’11 Agosto 2012, nel pomeriggio dello stesso giorno dalle 15:30 alla Basilica Papale di Santa Maria degli Angeli in Porziuncola Celebrazione di chiusura del Centenario e inaugurazione del Chiostro di Santa Chiara.

In allegato il programma completo.

Assisi is getting ready, as every year, to celebrate the Feast of St. Clare of Assisi, patron saint of television. On August 11th, 2012 at the Basilica of St. Clare.
In popular tradition, are 2 the most famous stories about the life of the Saint. The first tells that she defending Assisi from the Saracen troops under the command of Frederick II, blinding them, due to exposure of the monstrance outside the walls of the convent.

But it is the second story to make her the patron saint of television and telecommunications. Legend has it that a Christmas night Clare was ill and bedridden, unable to attend the Mass celebrated by St. Francis. And, on the pallet, had a vision of the church service.

Moreover, the Feast of St. Clare this year will be the culmination of the celebrations for the 800 years of consecration of the Saint.
