What does an Italian Catholic saint who lived 800 years ago have to teach us about the challenging times we’re facing today? St. Francis of Assisi is perhaps the most beloved saint in history, and his simple message of peace and forgiveness can help us navigate through a world more polarized than ever before. Whether it be his famous ability to communicate with the animal kingdom, or risking his life to share the true message of Jesus with the most powerful Muslim leader in the world, St. Francis reminds us that we are all called to be “instruments of peace” wherever we find ourselves.
