St. Francis, although a pleasure-seeker and soldier in his youth, became one of the great meditators and mystics of Christianity. He founded an order based on obedience, poverty and chastity, which won converts quickly, due to the force and honesty of his personality and charm.
St. Francis was a great lover of nature and animals. He is depicted here in meditation, with a nature so gentle that the birds approach and meditate with him.
