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.

    I really enjoyed the story of Saint Francis. Saint Francis Of Assis, happens to be one of my favorite. Saint Michael inspires me most.I would very much be apart of this net work. I read the other comments on this page. May I make a suggestion, it might help others that the most that the Saints are honor for be told first and for people who like to read all the history of the Saints be add in addition to the most known history that students need for projects. A word of advice to the students. The more you read on any subject. Knowledge is golden. May God Be With You All. God Bless You . Truly Louie Andes . PS Thank You

    The Saint I choose for may report is St Francis. He loved animals and I love animals. He didn't believe in hunting and I don't believe in hunting.
