This is an animated life of the saint who lived 800 years ago, yet whose courage to live a gospel life is still an inspiration today. Beginning with the party-prone, teenage Francis and concluding with a blessing from the dying founder, the film is simple, factual and powerful. The most significant scenes of conversion and growth are remembered with austere images and historical narrative, accurate in every detail. The reception of the stigmata is a powerful sequence that will assist any viewer in comprehending this mystery. Francis' final blessing will move today's Franciscan as it challenged his followers nearly eight centuries ago.
