CEAG and Treasuries II

Good day,

I have made 2 more treasuries inspired by the artwork of the Catholic Etsy Artist Guild.
This treasury is to thank the dedicated men and women who serve or have served in the US military for our freedoms, including religion. God bless them all. FYI: There are groups seeking rosaries for our military. Please google military rosary kits or military rosaries to find instructions to make your own military rosaries.

Saint Francis of Assisi ((born Giovanni Francesco di Bernardone; 1181/1182 – October 3, 1226). was an Italian Catholic friar and preacher. He founded the men's Franciscan Order, the women’s Order of St. Clare, and the lay Third Order of Saint Francis. St. Francis is one of the most venerated religious figures in history.

St. Clare of Assisi
Clare of Assisi (sometimes spelled Clair, Claire, etc.) (July 16, 1194 – August 11, 1253), born Chiara Offreduccio, is an Italian saint and one of the first followers of Saint Francis of Assisi. She founded the Order of Poor Ladies, a monastic religious order for women in the Franciscan tradition, and wrote their Rule of Life—the first monastic rule known to have been written by a woman. Following her death, the order she founded was renamed in her honor as the Order of Saint Clare, commonly referred to today as the Poor Clares.
