"Lord make me an instrument of Your Peace!" St. Francis appeals to every aspect of humanity. He is Gospel" Pope Benedict XVI "Take courage! Fix your gaze on our saints." St. Francis of Assisi is one of the most powerful Saints of our Church. Lenin, one of the founders of the Communist Revolution, said on his deathbed, "If we had had one hundred Francis' of Assisi, the revolution would have been successful." Come with us to Assisi, the land of St. Francis. No matter where you go there, you can feel St. Francis and St. Clare. See many of his Miracles. Visit the Portziuncola, first Franciscan Church, the Convent of San Damiano where the Crucifix spoke to Francis, when he asked, "What do you want of me Lord" and Jesus replied, "Go and rebuild my Church which you can see, is in ruins." Visit the Hermitage, where Francis went to meditate and hear the Lord's words. Come to his Basilica and visit his tomb. Learn about the Stigmata, how it came about, and what effect it had on the rest of St. Francis' life. Come with him as he returned to the Convent of San Damiano and Sister Clare, who cared for him. See his life and death as depicted by the many murals in the upper Basilica. Learn about St. Francis. We need him especially today. "During this construction period of Francis' life, one of the broken-down churches he worked on, was the little Benedictine chapel at Santa Maria degli Angeli. It was called the Portiuncola. It had been abandoned, and was in ruins. Francis rebuilt this church in honor of Our Lady, and leased it from the Benedictines for one barrel of fish per year. This became the first church of the Franciscan Order...." Taken from "Saints and Other Powerful Men in the Church."
