Saint Francis ... Catholic patron saint of animals and the environment

Renowned for drinking and partying in his youth ...



ASSISI, Italy (AP) — October 2013 / Pope Francis told thousands of journalists (on March 16) that he took to heart the words of his friend and chose to be called after St. Francis of Assisi, “the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and protects creation.”


A Green Tip of the Hat to Pope Francis, the First Catholic Pontiff to Name Himself after St. Francis of Assisi


Pope Francis made a pilgrimage to the hillside Italian town of Assisi, following in the footsteps of his namesake, St. Francis, the 13th-century friar who renounced a wealthy, dissolute lifestyle to embrace a life of poverty and service to the poor.

According to tradition, St. Francis was famously told by God to "repair my house." In word and deed, the first pope to name himself after St. Francis, has made clear how he wants to follow that command.

Francis is trying to shape a church that is welcoming to all, but especially to the most marginalized, with a church hierarchy that is worthy of its 1.2 billion flock.
