Happy Saint Francis of Assisi's Feast Day!
Note: You can download the free Saint Francis of Assisi coloring page here.
Saint Francis is credited for creating the Christmas creche, which Catholics have adopted into their homes, so I drew him thinking about plans for creating one.
(We tend to call ours the "nativity" but it's the same basic idea.)
Let us also take a moment to say his prayer of peace:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
