The Side of Saint Francis You’ve Never Seen Before

The Soldier – The Prisoner – The Beggar – The Saint

Saint Francis of Assisi led one of the most interesting lives of all the saints throughout Catholic history.  In our recent poll, Catholics chose him as their favorite saint.  And yet, his life is as much a mystery to us today as it was hundreds of years ago.

Not any more! 


Take a journey with one of God’s holiest of creatures—the man who shook the foundations of a corrupt church.  Who took a lead role in reforming the Body of Christ. Even when they would not dignify him with a priestly title.  

Saint Francis of Assisi started as a rich merchant, enlisted as a soldier, was captured and imprisoned, found freedom, and went home.  This alone is enough for an amazing adventure story.  But this was only the beginning.  From there, he became a beggar and eventually a saint.

His life is full of chaos and contradiction.  But once the contrary escapades are put together, we see the mosaic picture of complete devotion to God’s will.
