Statue of St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi is revered by Christians everywhere. He was known as a person of peace and a lover of nature. In the simplicity of his life, he saw the hand of God in all creation.

St. Francis' vision is shared by The Grotto. His presence in statue and spirit complements The Grotto gardens.

This bronze sculpture, created by artist Michael Florin Dente, was installed in 1993 in The Grotto Upper Gardens.

The Power of God’s Word

Oh, Lord of power and might, by Your Word You created all things. Give me the grace to listen each day to the Words of Holy Scripture to know that power in my life. By Your grace and love, allow me to hear and act on that Word to transform me for the better.

By the power of Jesus’ words he cured the sick, raised the dead and transformed sinners to saints. Pour out Your divine Spirit on me, and with Your mercy, forgive my sins and lead me to choose wisely what I say and do for Your honor and glory each day.

I ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Enjoy the peaceful setting of the St. Francis of Assisi statue, located in the Upper Gardens.
