St. Francis of Assisi is one of the most popular saints in the Catholic Church especially among animal lovers. This delightful mug honors St. Francis. The mug is made of ceramic in deep shades of teal blue with a matte outside finish and a glossy interior. On one side of the cup and on the lid are colorful images of St. Francis outdoors in nature with the animals he loved and felt were an important part of creation. The other side of the cup has a verse from the Prayer of St. Francis which reads “Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace”. The lid for the mug, which can conveniently also be used as a protective coaster, measures 4 inches across and has a verse from Matthew 5:9 which reads “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God”. The St. Francis mug measures 4-3/4 inches high and holds 14 ounces of hot or cold beverage. The mug is microwave and dishwasher safe so will be a beverage holder you will find yourself reaching for time and time again. The mug would be a wonderful gift to give to the animal lover in your family or circle of friends.
