François d'Assise , né sous le nom de Giovanni di Pietro Bernardone à Assise en 1181 ou 1182 et mort le 3 octobre 1226, est un religieux catholique italien, diacre et fondateur de l'ordre des frères mineurs caractérisé par une sequela Christi dans la prière, la joie, la pauvreté, l'évangélisation et l'amour de la Création divine. Il est canonisé dès 1228 par le pape Grégoire IX et commémoré le 4 octobre dans le calendrier liturgique catholique.

Saint François d'Assise est considéré comme le précurseur du dialogue interreligieux. C'est la raison pour laquelle sa ville natale a été choisie par Jean-Paul II comme siège de la journée mondiale de prière en 1986. Cette journée a été suivie d'autres journées de prière connues sous le nom de rencontres d'Assise. Le pape actuel de l'Église de Rome a pris le nom de François en signe de pauvreté, d'espérance et soumission à Dieu.

„Hail, queen wisdom! May the Lord save thee with thy sister holy pure simplicity!
O Lady, holy poverty, may the Lord save thee with thy sister holy humility!
O Lady, holy charity, may the Lord save thee with thy sister holy obedience!“

— Francis of Assisi
Context: Hail, queen wisdom! May the Lord save thee with thy sister holy pure simplicity! O Lady, holy poverty, may the Lord save thee with thy sister holy humility! O Lady, holy charity, may the Lord save thee with thy sister holy obedience! O all ye most holy virtues, may the Lord, from whom you proceed and come, save you! There is absolutely no man in the whole world who can possess one among you unless he first die. He who possesses one and does not offend the others, possesses all; and he who offends one, possesses none and offends all; and every one [of them] confounds vices and sins. Holy wisdom confounds Satan and all his wickednesses. Pure holy simplicity confounds all the wisdom of this world and the wisdom of the flesh. Holy poverty confounds cupidity and avarice and the cares of this world. Holy humility confounds pride and all the men of this world and all things that are in the world. Holy charity confounds all diabolical and fleshly temptations and all fleshly fears. Holy obedience confounds all bodily and fleshly desires and keeps the body mortified to the obedience of the spirit and to the obedience of one's brother and makes a man subject to all the men of this world and not to men alone, but also to all beasts and wild animals, so that they may do with him whatsoever they will, in so far as it may be granted to them from above by the Lord.

„Holy wisdom confounds Satan and all his wickednesses.“

„Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.“

— Francis of Assisi
Context: Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation. Where there is poverty and joy, there is neither greed nor avarice. Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt. The Counsels of the Holy Father St. Francis, Admonition 27.
