St Francis Saint Francis of Assisi By Msgr Leon Cristiani This biography had a lot of information on St Francis of Assisi He was a very generous man who founded the Friars Along the way he accomplished many good deeds He gave all that he had to the poor so that they could live a better life The only things he needed were food shelter and companionship St Francis of Assisi was born in September of the year 1182 He was born to a rich merchant named Pietro di Bernardone In 1202 he was held prisoner for several months over a dispute between Assisi and Perugia This was followed by a period of illness He didnt like the way his life was going so he turned to prayer and service for the poor In 1206 he officially turned down his fathers fortune To help bring his life to good he decided to become a hermit This attracted many followers He preached about the idea of having a simple life of following the Gospels When Pope Innocent III found out about his good works Francis was ordained a deacon His followers increased in population and were called friars which is a lower form of Francis name In 1212 he got help from Saint Clare and established a branch for women called the Poor Clares In 1221 Francis made a new edition for the lay people called the Third order After a long life of hard work he finally retired from leading the friars At this time he was given the stigmata or imprint of the wounds of Christ on his own body He also wrote the Canticle of Brother Sun He died October 31226 He was canonized a Saint in 1228 and his Feast day is October 4 This book taught me that Francis was a rich man before he converted his life I thought that he was always poor and he was showing appreciation
