As a young man Francis of Assisi renounced his wealthy background, dressed in coarse robes and lived in poverty. He believed every living creature and thing on earth was sacred and deserved respect. In this spirit, he founded the Franciscan Order, which endures today. Geraldine Elschner narrates in her poetic text the life and work of Francis of Assisi, one of the most famous saints of Christianity. Glowing reproductions of Italian frescoes and quotes by Pope Francis portray his life and works.
