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. The last thing Pietro wanted in his son was a man of God -- he wanted a man of business, a cloth merchant like he was, and ... Continue Reading

    I coul not find any miracles attributed to him and his not being a martyr I assume his starting the Franciscan order and its 3 rules are primary to being Sainted along with the stories regarding the animals and preaching peace and love especially to all including plus the attempted conversion of the Sultan.

    This is a very impressive account of St. Francis's life... He is a wonderful saint.
    However, we are not positive Pope Francis I took his name from St. Francis of Assisi.
    He also could have used Francis from St. Francis Xavier. :)
    God Bless!

    Dear Priests,

    As I recollected the sum and psalm issues, I hereby declaw the avenues of Holy Mass!
    Presbyterian gospel is directly conscious wherefore monks has issues with blood as in relatives to create a new ambiance in church. Therefore avenues as gospel since religious architecture and relics of theological historical artifacts and natural texts.
    The Rome was a hindrance since history to build churches. The time must speak that Priests is in a natural form to teach biologies in seminary. I believe for the issue that scientific text is or was or be able to conduct religion as far as a way to natural science in the flexibility of wade science! I congratulate to this point.

Thank you for advocating a message to God to keep her strong enough to receive veterinary care first thing Monday morning...please bless the veterinarian who didn't waste an ounce of time...and saved her..thank you for this mini miracle.

    I think that priests shouldn't have the option of marriage. I feel that they are models of the church and spritual strength for our women of chastity. I feel they need to be spiritually close to our Lord for enlightenment. Pray for us St. Francis so we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. God Bless you

    Today the Church needs another St Francis to rebuild Christs Church. I pray that God sends his presence to the Year of Faith, the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Vatican Council ll. That St. Francis intercession enlighten all to correctly interpret the Council.
