there is no darkness, only the absence of light.
there can be no hate where there is love.

saint francis of assisi, born giovanni di pietro di bernardone (1181 – 1226), was an italian catholic friar, deacon and preacher.
he founded the men's order of friars minor, the women's order of saint clare, the third order of saint francis and the custody of the holy land.
it has been argued that no one else in history was as dedicated as francis to imitate the life, and carry out the work of christ, in christ's own way.
he and his followers celebrated and even venerated poverty.
poverty was so central to his character that in his last written work, the testament, he said that absolute personal and corporate poverty was the essential lifestyle for the members of his order.
many of the stories that surround the life of francis say that he had a great love for animals and the environment.
