St. Francis of Assisi is acclaimed as the patron saint of animals and the environment. He is also considered as the pioneering Earth Day advocate. St. Francis of Assisi was a Catholic priest who left a life full of wealth in exchange for a simple life. He ordained the Franciscan Order of friars and the women's Order of the Poor Ladies. Later in his life, St. Francis received a vision that left him with the resemblance of Christ's wounds - marks resembling the wounds of Jesus Christ when he was crucified - making St. Francis the first person to receive holy wounds.
