    Description :

    “In 1211 Chiara met Friar Francis; she listened to him during his Lenten Sermon in the church of San Rufino; she decided together with Francis and Bishop Guido II to abandon home, and on the night of 27th–28th March 1211, she went to the Porziuncola to receive her penitence habit. On Palm Sunday that same year (27.3.), Chiara remained at her place in the church, while the Bishop distributed the palms. It was the same Bishop who went and handed her a palm personally. This was thought to be the sign that it was time to leave and join St. Francis at the Porziuncola, and so embrace her vocation.”
