Saint Francis of Assisi's works are the inspiration for the cartoon created by Patrick McDonnell that can be seen in the image posted atop this entry.
The caption of McDonnell's (creator of the Mutts comic strip) cartoon comes from a hymn about this saint which you can hear @ https://bit.ly/1OyEDyX
As many of you probably know, Saint Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals; particularly birds.
Cam, the cardinal who is the story teller in my book series, Words In Our Beak, is so moved by this saint's passion for birds that she named one of her daughters Frannie in his honor.
Frannie can be seen in the following photos and in the latter, Cam is feeding her.
