Publisher's Summary

Alongside St. Ignatius, who founded the Jesuits, St. Francis of Assisi is widely regarded as one of the most venerated saints in the Catholic Church due to his work establishing religious orders that have done an incalculable amount of good and service for societies. Like St. Ignatius, St. Francis also got his start as a soldier who experienced a vision that put him on a more divine path.
St. Francis eventually became a pillar of the Church, both living in poverty to assist those in greatest need and in establishing the Franciscan Order, the Order of Poor Clares, an enclosed order for women, and the Third Order of Brothers and Sisters of Penance. Near the end of his life, he became the first person recorded in history to bear the stigmata, the Passion wounds that Christ suffered in crucifixion, which only added to his ultimate aura and legacy.
Catholic Legends: The Life and Legacy of St. Francis of Assisi details the remarkable life he lived and analyzes the enduring impact his work has had on the Church and the world at large. Along with historic depictions of St. Francis of Assisi and other important places and events in his life, you will learn about this most venerated saint like you never have before, in no time at all.
