    Also known as Francis Bernardone, or il Poverello, St. Francis de Assisi was born Giovanni di Bernadone, named by his mother after John the Baptist on October 4th, in Umbria, Italy. The son of a rich cloth merchant, his father changed his name to Francis because he allegedly didn't want his child named after a saint.   Onto that landscape strode St. Francis of Assisi, who was born into affluence, but in a dramatic moment in the town square tore off his clothes and broke with his old ways and embraced a new life Author: Stephen Dinan.

    Lord, help me to live this day, quietly, easily. To lean upon Thy great strength, trustfully, restfully. To wait for the unfolding of Thy will, patiently, serenely. To meet others, peacefully, joyously. To face tomorrow, confidently, courageously. Francis of Assisi. Waiting, Faces, Helping. Do all you can to preach the gospel and if necessary.   Francis of Assisi: A Symbol of Peace Jay M. Hammond Since Sept. 11 the world’s attention, or at least America’s, has been focused on the war on terrorism.

    All Christians know his name. Few truly know the man. Francis of Assisi was not even five feet tall. He was not well educated. And yet he is the one saint commonly recognized as Alter Christus, the “other Christ.”Francis is not just any saint—he’s a saint for everyone, whatever your place or position in life.
