| At the intersection of past and present
It began in the Book of Genesis and is without end...
At the point when an "eye for an eye" was the mantra
and practice of all mankind, the son of man came to show us
-once and for all time- that peace was the true nature of God and
his creation building on the foundational lessons of the new
covenant, over many centuries many saints wholly embrace and
spread the true message of peace to the
four corners of the Earth.
Perhaps no other saint more greatly exemplified this embracing
of peace than St. Francis of Assisi. His gentle commitment of
peace toward all living things reminds us all still today of the unity
of all creation.
A hallmark signature of the most acclaimed architect in
Louisiana's rich history, The St. Francis Niche honors this truth,
gracing courtyards and great rooms of many of his greatest
masterpieces. Culminating in a manner suggestive of destiny, a
Catholic father and son in St. Francisvile, LA. -upon seeing the
inclusive nature of Pope St. Francis-knew that this local treasure
must finally be shared with all mankind...
