    I love the St. Francis statue and your accompanying verse. This St. Francis seems to represent the core of his kindness and love for animals. He need not be in cast in bronze, wakened from marble or granite, created of pottery in a mold.
    The St. Francis statue at the local church is small and made of bronze — he holds a small bird bath in one hand and a bird in the other. Unfortunately this statue is neglected. St. Anthony is the patron saint of this church. I keep meaning to go and add water or seed to his tray, wash away the dirt and dust, and plant a flower or two at his feet. Tomorrow, I will definitely go and help him send his message of love and kindness.

    I’ve been to Chimayo – in fact, I have a photo of the church on a kitchen ledge – but I don’t remember St. Francis. Perhaps he wasn’t there – at least in this incarnation – as it’s been twenty years or more since I was there. It’s a wonderful photo, and reminds me of the blessings of the animals I’ve experienced.

    Being the bird lover and “critter” lover that I am, St. Francis continues to be my favorite saint. Love this particular image of him–so light-hearted and joyful and embracing!
