Plot Summary
In 13th century Italy, Francis Bernardone (Bradford Dillman) is born to a father with business connections but renounces his claim on his family's wealth after hearing the voice of God. Although he encounters some resistance from those who doubt his motives, his selfless deeds make him one of the Catholic Church's most revered figures, and he is eventually canonized. Along the way, his example inspires pious acolyte Clare (Dolores Hart) to enter a nunnery.
