St. Francis is the part saint of animals and the environment. This play in three acts is somewhat biographical and begins after he has had a vision of Jesus that changed his life from debauchery to doing good for the world and especially for all life.Francis takes a vow of poverty and chastity and in fact, became actively ascetic. He had no possessions, wore only discarded rags and ate from donated vegetable foods or vegetables found in trash. He and his associates used no animal products and lived the life of vegans.In his thirties he was visited by a crucified angel and Francis was left with stigmata, open wounds on his hands, feet, and side where Jesus was punctured during his crucifixion and also marks where Jesus wore a crown of thorns.When Francis died at age 44, he removed his only possession, a friar's cloak, and lay naked on the ground and died. He was canonized 2 years later and his legacy includes the Franciscan and St Clare monastic orders. He has been the inspiration of many thousands of animal rights workers and enthusiasts and, of course, the growing vegan movement.
