F.A.Q.


  • What is the history of St Francis?


St. Francis of Assisi, born Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone in 1181 or 1182 in Assisi, Italy, is one of the most beloved and influential saints in Christian history. Here is an overview of the life and legacy of St. Francis:

1. Early Life and Conversion: Francis was born into a wealthy family and initially lived a life of luxury and privilege. However, he experienced a spiritual awakening and gradually began to renounce his material possessions in favor of a life of poverty and devotion to God. His conversion culminated in a dramatic gesture in which he renounced his inheritance and embraced a life of radical simplicity.

2. Founding of the Franciscan Order: In 1209, Francis founded the Franciscan Order (Order of Friars Minor) with a small group of followers. The order was based on the principles of poverty, humility, and service to the poor. The Franciscans sought to live in imitation of Christ and spread the message of peace and love through their actions.

3. Missionary Work: Francis and his followers embarked on missionary journeys throughout Italy and beyond, preaching repentance, reconciliation, and the love of God. They sought to bring comfort to the marginalized and oppressed and to foster reconciliation between warring factions.

4. Stigmata: In 1224, while praying on Mount La Verna, Francis reportedly received the stigmata, the wounds of Christ, in his hands, feet, and side. This mystical experience deepened Francis' identification with the suffering of Christ and became a symbol of his holiness.

5. Legacy and Influence: St. Francis' life and teachings had a profound impact on the Church and society. His emphasis on poverty, humility, and care for creation inspired countless followers, including members of religious orders, laypeople, and even popes. The Franciscan movement continues to thrive today, with millions of adherents around the world.

6. Canonization and Feast Day: St. Francis was canonized as a saint by Pope Gregory IX in 1228, just two years after his death. His feast day is celebrated on October 4th, the date of his death, and is marked by special prayers, processions, and acts of charity in honor of his memory.

St. Francis' life exemplifies a profound devotion to God, a deep love for all creation, and an unwavering commitment to peace and justice. He remains a beloved figure whose legacy continues to inspire people of all faiths to this day.
