A St. Francis statue reminds us of the humility and sanctity that we should all strive to attain. We revere St. Francis for the simplicity in which he lived his life. He was wholly devoted to Christ and tried to emulate His ways. We often find images of St. Francis surrounded by animals as he was so connected to the earth and the animals. He was also a great preacher and founder of several orders in the Catholic Church. Few saints are more revered than St. Francis of Assisi.
