St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi, originally uploaded by CarolinaRen.

My scanner did not recognize the top and bottom black portions of this card so it looks out of proportion here. I purchased this card, by monk/artist Robert Lentz, because I'm fascinated by the tale of Assisi. The story goes that the Icon of Christ Crucified came alive and said to him three times, "Francis, Francis, go and repair My house which, as you can see, is falling into ruins." (Thanks to Wikipedia for that quote!)
