The Fontanini Nativity story of St. Francis of Assisi: Formerly a child from a wealthy family, Francis gave away all of his possessions and committed his life to God. News of his deeds and kindnesses spread, and soon he had many followers, who soon became the Franciscan order of priests. St. Francis is known not only for his humility and kindness to all animals, but also as the person who planned an executed the very first Nativity pageant.
