One of the most beloved saints venerated by the Catholic Church is Francis, born in Assisi, Italy in 1181. A joyful young man, initially he worked with his father as a merchant but soon opted for a life of poverty and sacrifice. With 12 companions he founded the Order of Friars Minor (later called the Franciscans), a new religious family that multiplied so fast that in just 10 years it had over 5,000 members. He later established with St. Clare, the Order of Poor Ladies or Clares. Together with St. Dominic, Francis renewed Christianity during their time through preaching and most importantly through example. While he was praying on the mountain of Verna, during a forty-day fast in preparation for Michaelmas (September 29), Francis is said to have had a vision on or about September 14, 1224, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, as a result of which he received the stigmata. Brother Leo, who had been with Francis at the time, left a clear and simple account of the first definite account of the phenomenon of stigmata. “Suddenly he saw a vision of a seraph, a six-winged angel on a cross. This angel gave him the gift of the five wounds of Christ.” He is the patron saint of Italy.
