Celebrate the Namesake of Pope Francis
The beautiful and luminous symbols inlaid in standard bronze over the green patina bronze that comprises the rest of the St. Francis statuette are a great way to meditate on the life and teachings of this holy man as well as a way to teach young people about his life. These symbols include the sun, a dove, a fish, a star, and many more. They remind us of St. Francis’ prodigious love for the world around him and for all of creation, as immortalized in his Canticle of the Sun. St. Francis possessed a bounty of virtues, which is surely why Pope Francis was inspired to use him as a namesake. Chief among these virtues are: a love for the poor and for the spiritual value of poverty, a powerful burning love for nature and the simple innocence of animals, a dedication to the Church and constructive reformation, and many more. Celebrate these virtues as well as their inspiration of Pope Francis by giving the St. Francis with Brother Sun statuette as a gift to yourself or a loved one today.
