Saint Francis of Assisi Wooden Icon

This holy man of the people lived by a strict code of self-denial. Born into a wealthy family, St. Francis eschewed all possessions and trappings of wealth, including his father’s lucrative business. He was a fierce advocate of the poor, a lover of nature and a friend to animals. As he states in his now well-known prayer, “He Sought to Understand, Rather than to be Understood”. What an amazing concept that someone would dare to actually listen and listen intently –before talking---because as he says “By Self-Forgetting, We Find”. Add this prayer card to your wallet, altar, or special place of prayer and meditation as a reminder and tribute to Saint Francis of Assisi.
