Class Saint

St Francis of Assisi. The Patron Saint of Animals and Ecology. Feast day is 4th October. 

St Francis was a man of wealth and business who had a dream that God told him he had it all wrong. St Francis became a man of God who gave up all his possessions and began to preach. Others joined his simple life. St Francis had a deep relationship with nature - he felt all of God's creation was part of his brotherhood. He wrote the beautiful Canticle of the Sun that expresses this brotherhood with creation. 

St Francis of Assisi, pray for us.
