    Crucifixion of Christ with St. Francis from the Veronese Collection. Inspired from the original painting by S. Murillo. Lightly hand-painted cold cast bronze, inches. St. Francis of Assisi - St. Francis of Assisi - The Franciscan rule: Francis preached to townspeople—even though as a layperson he was without license to do so—and he soon attracted followers. In he composed for his mendicant disciples, or friars, a simple rule (Regula primitiva, “Primitive Rule”) drawn from passages in the Bible: “To follow the teachings of our Lord Jesus.

    Francis of Assisi from the 12th Century is remembered as one of the greatest saints. His life drew many thousands of people to Jesus Christ during his lifetime and countless millions since then. Many say that after the Apostles of Jesus he is the saint who became the most like Jesus. Yet, we have just over thirty short writings of Francis. Saint Francis of Assisi Receiving the Stigmata is the name given to two unsigned paintings completed around – that art historians usually attribute to the Flemish artist Jan van panels are nearly identical, apart from a considerable difference in size. Both are small paintings: the larger measures cm x cm and is in the Sabauda Gallery in Turin, Italy; the smaller.

    Thus the Rule of St. Francis was born: to give to the poor, to spread the Gospel, and to carry the cross of Christ. Francis’ companions came from every walk of life--the rich and the poor--and true equality of God’s children was practiced--to love, honor and respect all regardless of their status in the world. Francis of Assisi sought to live out Jesus' Sermon on the Mount in radically concrete ways, and in doing so he helped spark a religious revival that left an indelible mark on 13th-century Europe.

Cambridge, University Press, Today, Bert profiles St. Clare of Assisi, the patron of television, eye disease, embroiderers, and good weather, whose feast day is today.

Clare was already a faithful Christian when she first met St. Francis of Assisi inbut his total dedication to Christ sealed her convictions. And that is not the real Saint Francis. Heart is very much Saint Francis.

Heart suggests the complexities of human love and the mystery of one’s innermost yearning—with all its related joys and sorrows. A Vision of Christ’s Burning Love.

Francis, of course, had a heart very much attuned to the mystery of God’s overflowing love. St. Francis was a man of peace, humility, tolerance, and forgiveness among other things. He gave up all his wealth and status to become one of the most influential persons of the world.

Together, the three named the parallels and divergences in the lives of Saint Francis and Paul. In doing so, they discovered an entirely new—but ancient—way of following Jesus. This book teaches Galatians the way Jesus taught: through parables. In this case, the parables are about Saint Francis.

There are dozens of books that are biographies of St. Francis, or extended essays on his relevance for today. This book is different.

A new film, “The Sultan and the Saint,” apparently depicts Francis as a proponent of interreligious dialogue, not as a bold preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pope BENEDICT XVI – General Audience Wednesday, 27 th January St Francis. Dear Brothers and Sisters, In a recent Catechesis, I illustrated the providential role the Orders of Friars Minor and the Order of Preachers, founded by St Francis of Assisi and St Dominic de Guzmán respectively, played in the renewal of the Church in their day.

Francis was anything but humiliated; I would say overjoyed and free at last is more accurate. Be So Humble that You Are Never Humiliated.
