Franciscan Beauty


St. Francis’ life can be viewed as an extreme paradox. On one hand, he is widely recognised as leading one of the most refined spiritual lives as any human past or present. On the other hand, his physical presence was one of longstanding deprivation and malnutrition, inevitable disease.
In the person of St. Francis, these extremes came together to manifest and pour out blessings, peace and pure love to the world, which has resounded down through the centuries.
The raw, fine timber used originated from reclaimed Huon Pine forests in Tasmania. This ancient timber’s age is estimated at least 800 years old, meaning it was alive when St. Francis walked the hills of Perugia.
