St. Francis of Assisi is perhaps one of the most popular and well known saints in the world. There is so much to tell about this holy hero of the past. Many remember him for his association and gentleness with animals. Others recall the wonderful prayer of St. Francis, which tells us, specifically how to be better Christians. But I remember most fondly that St. Francis is the one responsible for the nativity scene as we know it today.
