St. Francis is such a saint that animal lovers everywhere can relate to easily, but his gentle and consistent love for all of God's creation should draw everyone everywhere.

blessings and hugs,

Did you post about this feast day last year? If so, I may be repeating myself...but I actually visited the monastery, La Verna, where St. Francis received the stigmata.

It's nestled on a tall hilltop in Tuscany...truly beautiful.
