Saint Francis of Assisi lived in Assisi, Italy. He was a son of a very wealthy family. He wore very classy clothes to show his wealth.
Saint Francis was on his way to war when the Lord called out to him and said, "turn around and go back home when you return home you will find out what you are going to do with your life".
A few days later when Saint Francis arrived back home, he than realized what he wanted to do. He wanted to serve for Jesus and care for all the animals.
Saint Francis began to pray and make many more sacrifices so he could develop a stronger spirit. He then decided to go on the street as a beggar and was trying to get people to stop sinning and return to God.
While he was getting people to believe in God he also got a message across to all the people to stop killing animals and to treat them like they are your siblings.
Saint Francis of Assisi than became a saint two years after he died.
