Product description
Perhaps the most beloved of Christian Saints, Francis Bernadone was born into a life of wealth and privilege in the town of Assisi, Italy, in 1181. At the age of 22, he left his home and inheritance to answer the calling of Christ. The founder of the Franciscan order, Francis renounced all forms of materialism and lived his life as Jesus lived his, with humility and unwavering faith.

The Patron Saint of animals and ecology, Saint Francis of Assisi is remembered for the compassion he showed to our most vulnerable – especially the poor and sick. The current Pope Francis chose his name in honor of Saint Francis, who was also known for rebuilding the Church, saving it from moral decay and refocusing it on those in need.

American Mint proudly presents this inspirational prayer ingot, designed in conjunction with the Vatican Observatory Foundation. Minted to the highest quality “Proof ” standard and layered in 24k gold, this ingot features a glorious image of Saint Francis of Assisi which has been expertly colorized on the obverse. On the reverse, the “Prayer of Saint Francis” reminds us of the virtue of humility and of being an instrument of God.

The Prayer of Saint Francis engraved on the reverse:
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
