SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI: SIGN OF CONTRADICTION Saint. Francis of Assisi is known as a lover of peace and of nature, and this is true. But he also went against all social norms. All that the world said would lead to happiness, he abandoned for something else, something more. It wasn’t until he encountered Christ that darkness and confusion were replaced with light and peace. Sign of Contradiction is about a sinner and a saint who was on a lifelong journey animated by grace. St. Francis was a re4al person with real struggles, temptations, and doubts. He was a disciple, perhaps, the greatest disciple. His life was marked by an unwavering openness to the Holy Spirit and a deep call to live penance. Our hope is that those who watch the film will be inspired by the life of St. Francis and desire to live for God as he did, as a sign of contradiction. 74 minutes.
