St. Francis of Assisi Comments

Founder of the Franciscan Order, born at Assisi in Umbria, in 1181. In 1182, Pietro Bernardone returned from a trip to France to find out his wife had given birth to a son. Far from being excited or apologetic because he'd been gone, Pietro was furious because she'd had his new son baptized Giovanni after John the Baptist.

    This website was very helpful. I recommend it to anyone researching for a history project, or even anyone who just wants to know some facts, out of curiosity. It provides many interesting/helpful facts (depending what you need information for, but no matter what, this website gives good info). This website is perfect for learning about saint Francis of Assisi.

    Saint Francis's story was very inspiring and the article was very helpful. He is the saint I am choosing for my confirmation name. While I may not be quite so willing to give everything I own (I'm too modest to preach half naked in the winter), I do think what he did was amazing!

    I totally disagree with Molly about St. Francis being God. He was very holy, but nowhere near as holy or as righteous as God himself. We are talking about two totally different people here!!!

    St Francis was a simple man with a big love of God and his creation.
    We can only find peace through simplicity and a love of God.
    Once we internalise this love we can proceed to see externally the beauty all around us.
    I see this daily in my dog's big brown eyes!!!!
