I have always been fascinated with the lives of the saints. Whether I'm reading about the Catholic saints of yore or the modern saints'lives highlighted by Voice of the Martyrs and other sources, I love reading about the lives of God's people. in their lives, I find inspiration and a new sense of dedication.
Yesterday I was reading some canticles by Saint Francis (who lived from 1182-1226) and was impressed by the beautiful simplicity of his poetry. And so I thought I'd share the story of his life today, his Feast Day.
