An eyewitness account of St. Francis written during his lifetime in Assisi verified this likeness. Recently, he guided the artist to the Vatican to share his delight and image.
This picture shows St. Francis humbly singing with the sparrow a song of joy for God. Everyone who loves animals, Mother Nature, “Brother Sun, Sister Moon” and the true call of Chris twill respond to the heart of St. Francis. His gentle soul is awakening environmental awareness even today.
