Summary

Summary

Here is the intriguing story of Saint Francis' conversion. Francis abandoned a life of privilege, riches, and war to follow God's call to serve others. He often gave money to the poor and took care of the lepers. Yet, he felt he must do more. Francis became a "knight" of the "lady Poverty," and began living life as a beggar. Everywhere he went, he urged people to stop sinning and return to God. Soon he had many disciples, and the great Franciscan family was born.
