There are many things that come to mind when you think of “Franciscan” life – of course, St. Francis comes to mind, and St. Clare as well. Perhaps Francis’ love of creation, and his Canticle of the Creatures. Or his intense desire for peace, and the Peace Prayer of Saint Francis. But what about the Nativity Scene we all know at Christmas? Or the Franciscan Crown Rosary . . .

These are just some popular devotionals and sacramentals that have developed from the life and tradition of St. Francis. Using the links below, you can find a little more about some of these well-known “all things Franciscan.”
