Staffer: Saint Francis of Assisi! Good to see you! Are those three in your group?
Alex: No. It’s a group of six, bot those kids aren’t part of it.
Narration: Darn right, we weren’t part of it. Alex tried to get Heinkel and me to play St. Francis’ followers, Clare of Assisi and St. Juniper. No, sir!
St. Juniper is best known for being good at apologizing. The Pope is a much better role for me to play. But I digress.
Definition Corner: St. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) is the subject of many legends about his love for animals. One story tells how he preached to birds. In another, he made peace between a town and the ferocious wolf who lived nearby.
