St. Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved saints of the Church, known for his poverty, humility, and love for God and creation. This lovely image of St. Francis is captured in a colorful glass suncatcher. The saint is featured just as many remember him, enjoying God's creation and preaching peace. Along the bottom are the words from the famous Prayer of St. Francis, "Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace." Trimmed in metal with a chain hanger for displaying in a window or any sunny spot.
I was drawn to St Francis of Assisi about 50 years ago and purchased his poem, "Lord make me an instrument of thy peace" in its entirety. When I saw this suncatcher I knew it was mine and it hangs between two rose window suncatchers. Everyday when I see it I am reminded in all I do to show others the peace St Francis preached.
Sharing A Tender Moment

This lovely sun catcher is a clear and colorful reminder of the sensitivity of this saint for all animals. Peace and harmony is captured "in the moment."
I love this beautiful sun catcher.
