  • by

A Rich Man In Poor Clothes: The Story of St. Francis of Assisi is a children’s biography book that follows the life story of one of history’s most famous saints and his work with the poor.

St. Francis (c. 1182–1226) was a young man who had everything going for him: he was rich, handsome, and well-educated, but he felt like there was something missing in his life—something that would make him feel truly fulfilled. He soon found out what that something was when he met Jesus Christ.

Francis became obsessed with serving God and helping others as much as possible—even if it meant giving up all of his earthly possessions! He started his own movement called “The Franciscan Order,” which went on to become one of the largest religious groups in history.
