Have you wondered why Saint Francis statues frequently include birds? There is a reason for it. Saint Francis was so inspired to share the word of God that when he had no people to share with, he shared with small creatures. This statue, true to form, shows him with two little birds. This Saint Francis statue measures 6-1/4 inches wide and is made of durable resin.

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,
And where there is sadness, joy.
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.
