Saint Francis’ Love of Christmas

 

Christmas was a special celebration for Saint Francis.

Sunday we celebrate Christmas. It was a feast dear to Saint Francis. In fact, he encouraged his followers to fast from the Feast of All Saints until Christmas. He also requested that civil rulers and landed gentry give an extra ration of food to their animals on Christmas day.
