St. Francis was born in Assisi in the twelfth century. After serving for a time as a soldier, Francis decided to renounce his wealth and all of his worldly goods to live a life of poverty. In 1210, he founded the Order of Friars Minor, also known as the Franciscans. He also founded a religious order for women, the Poor Clares. After a life spent preaching the Gospel, Francis died in 1226 and was canonized in 1228. His feast day is celebrated on October 4th.
