Steve Paulson Reports on St. Francis of Assisi

December 24, 2006

Steve Paulson prepared this report on Saint Francis of Assissi and his continuing influence in the modern world.  Francis was an Italian mystic who lived 800 years ago, was a peace broker during the Crusades, and is the patron saint of animal lovers. Actress Sarah Day reads selections from Valerie Martin’s novel, “Salvation.” And we hear a lot of location sound recorded where Francis lived in Italy.
