Show me how anyone can have faith without actions. I will show you my faith by my actions.  (James 2:20 )

A Day in the Life of St. Francis

Processing:

Have a discussion on who St. Francis of Assisi is and how he showed his love for people and other creations as well. One of the more popular saints, St. Francis, gave us an example of what loving Jesus is like. He not only preached about Jesus, he also encouraged his “brothers” to take care and love the less fortunate and those who have less in life. He taught us to love Jesus by doing and setting a good example for others to follow.
