Brother Sun, Sister Moon display awe and wonder of God’s creation for Poor Clare Nuns

Sister Mary Francis, a Poor Clare, asked a big cloud to pass along as she viewed the encroaching moon at her order's monastery in south St. Louis County. The sisters were viewing a total solar eclipse, the first one visible in the St. Louis area in about 575 years.

Brother Sun and Sister Moon put on quite a show for the Poor Clare Nuns.

As he described in his hymn "Canticle of the Sun," St. Francis believed that everything was a gift from God; thus the elements of nature were his brothers and sisters.
