St.Francis of Assisi
Eight centuries ago, the call of Jesus to a young man in a nondescript Italian town of Assisi was unmistakably clear. The young man was rich. He was handsome. He had friends. Apparently he seemed to lack nothing, until the call came. He couldn’t ignore that irresistible call: Lord, What do you want me to do? “FRANCIS, BUILD MY CHURCH” Francis of Assisi had found his vocation. He never looked back. He set out on a programme of building the Church. Perhaps, no saint has influenced the church and the world as profoundly as St. Francis with his message of peace, Universal Harmony, Brotherhood and sisterhood of all God’s creatures. After eight centuries, the spiritual treasure of Assisi continues to permeate the Church. St. Francis continues to be one of the most loved saints.
