St. Francis of Assisi is considered the patron saint of animals. The statue of St. Francis, in yesterday’s photo, is in my front yard in memory of my animals that have died.
While I don’t subscribe to any particular religion, I’ve always felt a connection to the divine. There are many aspects of many different religions that speak to me, and, for whatever reason, make sense in their own way. St. Francis is one of those aspects.
Plus, I think he looks cool in the garden.
