    the life of all saints are inspirable even if some saints had a bad life before they become a saint but they really have the capacity of being a saint because they know how to change their life from bad to good... and st. francis is one of my favorite saint because of his attitudes and he is a friar of the franciscan of the immaculate. a good founder........
