Monasterio de Santa Clara
This monastery is where nuns of the Order of Saint Clare of Assisi (usually called Poor Clares) lead a life of prayer and contemplation, having renounced the world and earthly possessions. The church is a lovely cream-colored building that is very much in the mold of Spanish-built mission churches in California, U.S.A. Carrying on an old tradition, people often come here with offerings (usually eggs) and ask the saintly nuns to pray for good weather.
alam ko po na lahat ng hiling ay mapag bibigyan nyo. alam ko din po na nasa tao ang gawa nasa diyos ang awa. Alam ko na pag bibiyan nyo din ang kahilingan ko. Di man ngayon umaasa po ako na malapit na. Di po ako bibitaw sa pananampalataya....... salamat po......
Maraming salamat po St. Claire sa patuloy nyo pong pag gabay sakin. Kahit wala pa po ang resulta. Alam ko pong hindi nyo po ako pababayaan dahil kayo po ng panginoon ang nagbibigay lakas loob sa akin. Masaya po ako dahil nakilala ko po kayo at nakabisita po ako sa tahanan nyo. I Love You St. Claire. Patuloy parin po akong magdadasal sa inyo dahil alam ko pong patuloy nyo po kaming gagabayan.
Dear St. Claire,
I'm so far away from you to visit your shrine so through this site I'd like to speak to you my beloved St. Claire. Thank you very much for all the help, assistance and intercession you did , do and still will be doing for me and my family. Through you I have faith that all my prayers, wishes and desires will be granted by our God Almighty and Lord Jesus Christ.
My husband and I are going to the Philippines this year. I humbly ask your intercession that we will be blessed with good weather, that we will be blessed with good health of mind and body, that we will be safe and protected on our trip before, during and after our vacation to the Philippines. I pray fervently that we have more than enough money for this trip. I also ask you to that no barriers or hindrance will come our way before , during and after this trip.
I ask these in Jesus'name. In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit . AMEN

Whether or not my petitions are answered according to my wish, I will endure to visit Monasterio de Santa Clara as long as I have time. St. Clare and her prayerful nuns are very good to me. They are my strength in times of my anxieties and doubts. Whenever i visit the place, I feel refreshed and enlightened by the grace of God and the Holy Spirit thru the never ending intercession of St. Clare and collective prayers of the Poor Clare Nuns. An excellent place indeed for deep prayers and meditation!!!
Dear Lord God and St Claire maraming salamat po for the answered prayers
Prayers give me the sense of encouragement to face the challenges everyday.
I've known St Claire thru my sister , she advised me to write a petition letter and offer eggs to St Claire to help me resolve my problem which i did. I went to St Claire church only last 24th Nov 2011 to pray and seek for the encouragement and guidance how to handle these people who always make my work difficult in the office that affects my job and health. I beleived in the power of prayers , after 1 week i see result , my Boss become nice to me as well as my colleagues . I THANK GOD AND ST CLAIRE FOR THE ANSWERED PRAYERS.
St. Claire I am one of your many devoters... everytime i visit you i always write the same petition.. but it never came true... but i know you dont answer NO... you just want me to wait for the right time when you can answer my simple petition...
--- St. Claire I will never stop believing.. You and St. Jude will always be my patron... and God will always be my Saviour... Thank you St. Claire for listening... I will always BELIEVE... I PROMISE..
