St. Francis of Assisi

The church of St. Francis of Assisi is located by the Vodnjan – Bale road. It was constructed in the 13th century. The interior of the church was decorated with frescoes, of which only traces are visible today. The “kazuns” park can be found not far from the church, in order to accentuate the specific and characteristic architecture of the area of Vodnjan.

Quotes of Saint Francis of Assisi:

“We are forgiven when we forgive”

“Allow me Lord to understand my neighbour even if he doesn’t understand me”

“We receive when we give”

“May the Lord grant me grace to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

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.

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

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, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
