Franciscans have a rich tradition since our Orders began in the 13th Century. We invite other Franciscans to contribute to this section in order to enhance this website. It should be a good mix of text and images. As the lead image/fresco indicates, this section will center on St. Francis of Assisi and Mary, the Holy Mother of Jesus.
Pietro Lorenzetti, c. 1320
Madonna with St Francis and St John the Evangelist
Lower Church, San Francesco, Assisi
The Mother of Jesus pointing to St. Francis, as if to say 'great things are expected of him.'
