Clara Landini

Our sister Clara has fallen asleep in Christ. Confident in our hope of eternal life, let us commend her to the loving mercy of our Father and let our prayers go with her. She was adopted as God’s daughter in baptism and was nourished at the table of the Lord; may she now inherit the promise of eternal life and take her place at the table of God’s children in heaven.
