By mspohn, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Born into a wealthy family, Francis enjoyed spending money on himself.
Francis participated in a battle between Perugia and Assisi. He was a prisoner of battle for a year and became seriously ill.
During this time, Francis heard a voice directing him to go home and "serve the master rather than man."
So Francis returned to Assisi and gave all of his money and possessions away .
Francis lived a simple life. He encouraged people to take care of animals just as they would take care of other people.
Within a few years other people had begun to copy his lifestyle. This began the Franciscan Order.
