St. Francis wearing a table cloth
with a flag and a yellow plate.
The priest told Francis that the best way to become a saint was to be martyred.
Becoming a martyr was easier said than done and Francis struggled to find anyone in Nuova Lazio who was prepared to put him to death. He put together a pile of stones but no one seemed interested in throwing them at him.
|Maybe they were too heavy to throw?|
First he tried card tricks.
Then he worked up a trick making doves appear.
People started paying attention when he did a fire trick.
But it was when he made a lady float that he really started to get some attention.
People started to wonder if he was in league with Satan.
Finally people became interested in throwing stones at him.
|"You took your time fellas!"|
Everybody was happy. The stone throwers were happy because the scary unexplainable magic tricks stopped. Francis was happy because he died and went straight to Heaven. Giuseppe was happy because he started a shoe factory and Satan was happy because he knew the stone throwers would eventually go to Hell.
A few years later Francis was canonised.
He became Saint Francis of Abraveboi.
