Product DescriptionSt. Francis of Assisi is one of the best loved saints in the Catholic Church. Almost everyone knows how he gave up his fortune to live simply and more closely to nature. This print shows St. Francis standing in the countryside surrounded by colorful birds which seem to have no fear of him. The Italian art print measures 11 by 14 inches and is laminated for protection. It comes in a simple gold frame which blends in with the warm colors used in the background of the print while presenting a pleasing contrast with the darker colors used in the robes of Francis.
St. Francis is often used as a model for living simply and in harmony with nature which is the model the Franciscan order he founded lives by. The traditional print is a reminder of the love and compassion St. Francis, and God, have for all creation down to the smallest bird. It is why St. Francis is the patron saint of animals. It will also be a reminder to us that we are asked and encouraged to have this love and live this way also.
