This 3 1/2″ tall St. Francis of Assisi peg saint doll makes a great sacramental gift. St. Francis wears his traditional brown robes and two birds flutter about him. At his feet, the fishes attentively listen to his preaching. Opposite the fish, a squirrel sits at his side.
St. Francis of Assisi is famous for his love of animals and nature as well as founding a religious order. Formerly a soldier, St. Francis was a man of action and his simplicity of life extended to ideas and deeds. He famously thanks God in his Canticle of the Sun. Give this lovely doll to someone special today! Patron saint of Animals, Merchants and Ecology. Feast day: October 4.
