See Image Gallery for Saint Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved catholic saints of all times. And there are several reasons for this to be this way that one can discover when reading about this holly manís life and doings. Born with all a man could need for a peaceful and tranquil life, he chose his faith over his wealth; he chose those in needs and in pain over his selfish needs. He devoted his time and energy to all Godís creations, not just men but also animals, plants, etc. Thatís why frequently images, carvings and statues evoking St Francis feature not only his figure dressed in the brown rustic tunic with a rope on the waist but also birds and wild animals surrounding him. According to his biographers he had a special sensitivity to perceive Godís essence in each and every one of his creations; hence, resisting the bodyís impact and listening to his soul, St Francis approached each and every one of Godís creatures with such kindness and purity of heart that not even wild wolfs attacked him.
