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 was born in October 4th 1981, exactly 800 years after Saint Francis. I have a big statue of him in my apartment.
    Tonight Francis gave me a very important message and answer one of my biggest questions.
    Please have faith, believe, listen and you will see.
    Thank you.

    If you want to experience a taste of Franciscan life, consider joining the Third Order of Franciscans. We live normally in society, but gather in our joyous spiritual community
    where we can worship, talk of spiritual and daily matters, and form strong, lasting friendships. A Catholic church will be able to give you contact with our order in your area.--Bill

    In this wonderful article I came across two instances.(1)When the saint wanted to meet the pope, he was driven out.I quote "he went straight to Rome to see Pope Innocent III. You can imagine what the pope thought when this beggar approached him! As a matter of fact he threw Francis out. But when he had a dream that this tiny man in rags held up the tilting Lateran basilica, he quickly called Francis back and gave him permission to preach." (2)His mother named him after "John the Baptist" (which his father didn't agree and changed it to" Francesco"). In this days of tribulation to the Catholic church,people like Francis is needed to put a hold on to the tilting Catholic church,and to point out the mistakes and wrong path being preferred even by the clerics,like John the Baptist. Dear St Francis of Assisi, please pray for our Catholic Church.
