Today is the feast day of Francis, the saint from Assisi. He was not a monk (with a black habit) but he was a catholic friar (with a brown habit), deacon and preacher. He was born in Italy in the 12th century. He died on 3rd October 1226. The friars’ vows are poverty, chastity and obedience. Francis cared for the poor and the sick. He preached to the animals and he is the patron saint of animals.
