An original tunic worn by St. Francis found in Cortuna, Italy
When St. Francis' relatives saw him, 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 was out of his mind.
But God's servant paid no heed to all this; unmoved by insults, he thanked almighty God for everything.
