The son of a wealthy merchant became a humble follower of Christ. Saint Francis is rendered here wearing the robes of the Franciscans, the order of monks which he founded. So devoted was he, that he preached to the animals, as is artfully depicted in this lovely statue. Saint Francis is the patron saint of ecologists, animals and merchants. This statue, made of resin, stands 36-1/2 inches high, 16-1/2 inches wide and 13-1/2 inches deep. Order it to place within an alcove in a garden, or inside a church or chapel, school or home.

Prayer of Saint Francis for Peace
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
