His simple life was so radical, that with no intentions of beginning a religious order, within 10 years, St. Francis had 5,000 people following his example of simplicity and devotion to God!
Slip these socks on your feet and be reminded of the simplicity of St. Francis. His love for nature, his simple poverty, and deep trust and reliance on the Lord! Francis was obedient to God and followed his call away from the glory of a soldier to eventually be the man to "Rebuild [God's] Church!"
Let these be a reminder to you to trust in the Lord for all your needs, big and small, and to follow the call of God-it will lead to your deepest joy and freedom!

St. Francis lived simply and loved being with God’s creation. He spent much of his time outdoors praying among the trees, animals and sunshine. One day, St. Francis asked his friends if he should continue his work as a preacher or spend more time alone in silent prayer. They told him, “You must continue to preach!” Francis was so excited by their answer that he immediately started preaching... to the nearby birds! To each bird he said, “In every beat of your wing and every note of your song, praise Him!”
