Francis: A Very Modern Ecologist

This is an exploration of the ecological Francis. Francis would not have known what the word meant and he certainly would not be familiar with the science as we need to be today. He had, however, deep spiritual insights and was in touch with the creation and Earth, so much so that, he became almost a shaman for the church. The process was certainly one of personal development after a decision to follow Christ. Today Francis has been made the saint of ecology, as he always was. This article is offered as an attempt to understand the instincts he explored.
