St. Francis of Assisi

A happy Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi to all!


St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226)
St. Francis of Assisi was a rich Italian’s son who led a carefree life. As a soldier, he was taken prisoner by enemies for a year. After his release, he heard Jesus calling him to rebuild God’s House. St. Francis sold everything and went around preaching about Jesus. He had a group of followers whom became the Franciscans. St. Francis loved all of God’s creation. He even preached to the birds! He is the patron saint of animals. His feast day is on 4 October. Visit the Happy Saints store.
