Narrative:
Born to a prosperous family in Assisi, St. Francis realized as a young man that his life was to take a different course than one of earthly wealth and status. At a time when the Church needed a voice and witness to simplicity and total surrender to the generosity of God, Francis became a poor man because of his love for Jesus.

One day, during prayer at the church of St. Damian, Francis heard God speak to him through the cross of this beautiful, though neglected building. He heard the words, “Francis, go and repair My house.” He immediately began to restore the structure itself, only later to understand that God had called Francis to restore the Church in spirit and truth.

In 1224 Francis received the Stigmata, the wounds of Christ, through which he grew in great holiness and closeness to the sufferings of the Lord. Francis was known for his gentle manner and humble heart, preaching the Good News even to the birds of the forest and fellowshipping with the wild animals living in the surrounding lands. Indeed, Francis considered all creation his family.

The founder of the Friars Minor, Francis made significant contributions to the growth of Christianity and the medieval Church.

As a window to heaven, St. Francis is shown wearing a simple habit, transfigured in color and form. Also transfigured are his wounds, each of which is shown as an eight pointed star, a sign and symbol of the Resurrection.
(This narrative is printed on the back of Note Cards.)
