From Francis’s deeply spiritual life arose the Franciscan order, which seeks to follow his lifestyle to imitate Christ by living a life of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Francis is said to have been the first of the Italian mystics. He was the most beloved saint of the Middle Ages, captivating those who have read of him. He had the marvelous talent of seeing all the world – every living thing – as a beautiful gift from God. He called the sun, the moon, and all the creatures of earth his brothers and sisters.
