DOES ANYONE KNOW MUCH ABOUT SAINT KIARA? VERY LITTLE IS WRITTEN ABOUT HER. I CAN'T EVEN FIGURE OUT WHY SHE WAS CHOSEN AS A SAINT. ALL I KNOW IS SHE WAS A MAIDEN FROM IRELAND, AND WAS A SPIRITUALIST.
THANKS. HOLLY

Kiara

First of all, I wouldn't worry about height just yet. At thirteen, you still have some growing to do. Secondly, I know many women who are five feet or less, and they have had perfectly normal, happy lives. What you are like on the outside has nothing to do with who you are on the inside. Neither does a name. You are who you decide to be. I'm sure that you have many positive traits and abilities. Focus on those and don't worry so much about the rest. I know that it is much easier to say that than to do it, but really and truly, you hold the keys to who you are in you own hands. Another thing to remember is that if we turn our focus to other people and to things outside of ourselves, we will be much happier. I wish you all the best. smile.gif

I can't find much, just the following (repeated on several websites).

Saint Kiara was a 6th century Irish Roman Catholic saint about whom very little is known. Kiara, who was was also known as Chier, was a disciple of Saint Fintan Munnu. Kiara lived in Tipperary. Her feast day is celebrated October 16. She followed everything Jesus Christ did and then followed Mary Mackillop from when she then died saving a poor person.

She lived near Nenagh, County Tipperary, at a place now called after her: Kilkeary.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
