Tuesday 28 September 2021 There is no doubt that Francis of Assisi lived. His real name was Giovanni di Pietro Bernardone and he was a member of a wealthy family in Assisi, Italy. He was born in 1181 or 1182 and died in 1226. Francis owes his worldwide fame to his literally exemplary way of life and the improvement of the prestige of the Roman Catholic Church in his time. He founded a still popular order that values poverty, he wrote and preached and tradition has it that he performed many miracles. This is how he was said to be able to communicate with animals. No wonder his holiday is now Animal Day. It is also known that he received the stigmata, that is, the wounds that Jesus received on the cross. After all, Francis imitated Jesus' life. This gave rise to other legends that we will not withhold from you during the lecture. Hear the story of a special, beloved and versatile character of Christianity. Time: 8 pm.
