Francis of Assisi: living the prayer

One of the best known Christian prayers today is known as the 'Prayer of St Francis'. Francis of Assisi was a 12th - 13th century Friar and founder of the Friars Minor. 

St Francis didn't actually write this prayer. It is much more recent. According to Daniel Horan it was composed by an anonymous French writer about 100 years ago. The prayer does reflect both the way St Francis lived his life and the Franciscan spiritual tradition

Today is his day, so here is a version of the 'Prayer of St Francis' with music and photographic images of the natural world.
