The short life of
St. Francis (1182-1226) is dedicated to living the Scriptures of Christ embracing Poverty and Love for Our Lord and Love for
“All Creatures of our God and King”.
“The Virgin Mary,
humble servant of the Lord, was open to his every word and call. She was embraced
by Francis with indescribable love and declared the protectress and advocate of his family. . . ”
From The Blessed Mother, Angels and St. Francis, Cimabue, c. 1300
