St. Francis' popularity is partly due to his infectious enthusiasm, gaiety and love of life. As we know, animals trusted Francis and he treated them with courtesy. He politely asked twittering birds in a marketplace not to interrupt his sermon. He once turned aside to preach to a flock of birds, exhorting them to praise their creator. Near the end of his life St. Francis composed a song of praise and thanks to God for all his creations called the Canticle to Brother Sun.
