Baptized Dina, also known as Chiara de Pianello, Blessed Clare Bosatta and her sister, Marcellina both cared for the poor, uneducated children and the neglected elderly at their local parish, administered by St. Luigi Guanella, their priest. So when he asked them to help start the House of Divine Providence, serving the poor and the religious order, Daughters of St. Mary of Providence, they eagerly accepted. In 1887, both sisters contracted tuberculosis. Clare served as superior of the community for a time. A contemplative, she offered God her own life to protect raise, and educate children and young people in difficulty. She died at the age of 29 and was beatified by John Paul ll, April 21, 1991.
