Saint Francis of Assisi: What led the religious figure to abandon a life of luxury for a life of poverty?

Saint Francis of Assisi, an important figure in the Roman Catholic Church, was born into a life of wealth and luxury but traded that for a life of poverty. 

The exchange was made after he reportedly heard the word of God. 

Saint Francis of Assisi was guided by his love for animals and his passion for helping those who lived in poverty. 

He was born in Italy around 1181 and died in 1226. 

 

You can also celebrate by saying St. Francis’ prayer and enjoying food inspired by the Umbria region of Italy where Assisi is located.
