Happy Saint Francis of Assisi's Feast Day!
To celebrate this holy day, let's color...
Note: You can download the free Saint Francis of Assisi coloring page here.
Rather than draw St. Francis with an assortment of animals (because animals are a major drawing challenge for me), I decided to draw him with the Christmas creche.
In the spirit of poverty and joy and creativity and love for the Holy Family, he is credited for creating the Christmas creche, which Catholics have adopted into their homes.
(We tend to call ours the "nativity" but it's the same basic idea.)
May this coloring page inspire you to prepare your heart with the same love and care that St. Francis prepared the creche.
