St. Francis of Assisi not surrounded by animals but reading to townspeople, made 1515/20. Detail from a framed altarpiece or retable in oak, Brussels from the circle of Pasquier Bormon (1510—1536).
One of his most famous sayings is
“Lord, grant me the strength to accept the things I cannot change,
he courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.”
