who he helped and info about Francis becoming a saint.
Francis was born in Assisi Italy, and lived a wealthy childhood and believe it or not had wealthy friends . he was born in 1182. since he was a child he liked to party!! The next box is all about how much of a big heart francis had!!
Why we value Francis...
It's such a shame that Francis only lived for 44 years, because he had such a big heart!! he heard God call him multiple times throughout church, So thats when he wanted to help out others that are in much more than himself!! He showed compassion to Leapers which were people with a certain disease and seen as outsiders so they got kicked out
1. Francis preached and lived a life of poverty and loved animals. His real full was Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone. 2. He was just canonised as a saint two years after his death! 3.Today Francis is the patron saint for ecologists , a title honouring his love for animals and nature. 4.October the 4th is St Francis feast day were everyone celebrates his past, his feast is related to his love of all things nature and animals.
we value Francis because of many reasons but there are certain reasons.....and they are, 1. Francis had such a big heart of practically everything but he especially cared for animals and Nature. 2. He cared for people. for example he grew up with a wealthy family, but when he saw poor people he decided to choose a life of poverty! 3. St Francis celebrated the dignity of each individual because each person was created in the image of God.
