Meet St. Francis of Assisi!
St. Francis of Assisi (October 4th)
Patron of: animals, the environment, merchants, tapestry workers
St. Francis of Assisi is one of the most well known and loved saints. Founder of the Franciscan order, animal lover and church reformer. He heard God ask him to "rebuild his church"- so St. Francis went and did just that! He founded an order dedicated to living humbly and walking in the footsteps of Christ. St. Francis of Assisi also received the stigmata- the wounds of Christ on his hands, feet and side- from a six winged fiery angel!
Handcrafted from the softest plush, and standing at 10 inches tall this St. Francis of Assisi plush is sure to become your little one's favorite companion!
Gorgeous embroidery details on his face, and the butterflies and flowers on his habit make this piece even more of a treasure. St. Francis is dressed in his traditional brown habit complete with a rope belt around his waist. In his arms is the cutest, fluffiest little lamb. St. Francis was once gifted a lamb that attended mass with Francis and would bow down during the elevation of the host.
St. Francis of Assisi comes tagged with feast day and patronage information, ready for gifting (if you can manage to let him go!)
Plush material is surface washable. Each doll made lovingly by hand. Due to the handmade nature of this doll, some very slight variation may occur.
