St. Francis might have preached the gospel to birds, but he was not a sissy.
He was a world traveler, venturing all the way from Italy to Egypt to try and convert a Sultan so that the Crusades would end.
He was shipwrecked often on his travels to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
He helped rebuild churches and monasteries all over the Italian countryside.
And he still found time to preach the Gospel to the birds of the air.
What an ODG.
