Habit worn by St. Francis of Assisi
When his friends and relatives saw Francis, they covered him with insults, calling him a fool and a madman, and hurling stones and mud at him. Seeing him so changed, they thought he must be out of his mind. But God's servant paid no heed to all this; unmoved by insults, he thanked almighty God for everything.
