    Thank you so much for all this information on St. Francis, my son is named Francis the third, after his dad and his dad before him, I am grateful for the knowledge to impress upon my son, I wanted him to know these things and funny thing is, he is so much like his namesake........... he is so much more humble than the materialistic child he once was.
