The profoundly moving opening line of a prayer, reputedly by St. Francis, is engraved on this necklace. In adolescence, Francis became a prisoner of war from one of the constant battles between Italian city-states. During his internment, Francis underwent a spiritual awakening. His unassuming character, love of nature and criticism of the greed and worldliness of the established Church earned him an enormous following throughout Europe in the 13th century. His love of the natural world and all its creatures is commemorated in the yearly tradition of St. Francis' Blessing of the Animals.
