St. Francis & Animals
The seraphic friar is surrounded with animals that are described in the saint's life: the birds to whom he preached, the rabbit who wouldn't leave him when he saved him from the snare, the ferocious wolf who ceased to terrorize the town at the saint's behest, and more.
Anyone who has had a pet or been around animals understands that not only does every animal have its own unique personality and intelligence, but that animals can be very responsive to the human beings around them. In the lives of the Saints we find this responsiveness can be brought to unimaginable levels in the presence of holy people. And the stories of Saint Francis and the animals are the perfect and most beloved examples of this. It is no wonder that the Seraphic Friar is known as the patron saint of animals, birds, and the environment.
