St Francis Garden Fountain Statue by artist Carlo Bronti. What better garden focal point than a sparkling, over yard-tall garden fountain shepherded by the world’s most beloved and recognizable saint, Francis of Assisi (1181-1226). A dove, doe and squirrel join a bevy of forest animals to celebrate the life-giving waters cascading from a generous urn into a calming pool below. This garden fountain statue is exquisitely sculpted, then cast in antique-stone finished, quality designer resin, this heirloom religious statue features an integrated, UL-listed, indoor/outdoor pump. Simple assembly required.
In declaring St. Francis of Assisi the Patron saint of those who promote care for nature, the Church recommends Francis as a model for animal and nature lovers, environmentalists and ecologists. Francis shows us how to live in a way that respects and honors nature as God’s creation.
Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace, Saint Francis Prayer
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; 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; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
