Here are two recent paintings inspired by my guardian St Francis. The second is St Francis as I feel him, with one of my Spirit Animals The Fairy wren. The first is inspired by a quote:
“All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light
of a single candle.”
ancesco di Bernardone, known to us now as St. Francis of Assisi. Francis (1181/2-1226) was thin. He wore a simple tunic, with a piece of rope as a belt, and no shoes. He was eccentric and preached passionately.
St Francis was a person who so surrendered his life to Truth and Light – and evolved beyond the level of faith and belief – he received from God the ability to see and perceive beyond the natural barrier of this physical three-dimensional world, and observe the parallel dimensions that causes all events in this realm – and ultimately what the Bible refers to as the Kingdom of Heaven and God.
He is my inspiration as his way is the true PATH – the true WAY – for all seekers of LIGHT.
The Prayer of St Francis as said by Catholics:
