Saint Francis, like Pope Francis today, believed love is the most important quality in life, especially love of God, of others and of the world around us. The Story of St Francis is a charmingly illustrated account of the beloved Italian saint who founded the Franciscan Friars and was renowned for showing kindness to all God’s creatures. We learn how illness and his time spent in prison affected Francis deeply and strengthened his relationship with God. We also discover how Francis devoted his life to helping the poor, his taming of the wolf of Gubbio and his great friendship with a noblewoman named Clare. The Story of St Francis teaches us to follow Francis by carrying out small acts of kindness every day to help our friends, our family, our neighbours and the natural world.
