Il Crocifisso - La Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli Museo Assisi – Dipinto di Dino Carbetta
"The Crucifix - The Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli Assisi Museum - Painting by Dino Carbetta"...
Portiuncula is a town and a parish situated about three-quarters of a mile from Assisi. The town has grown up around the Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels. It was of this little church moved within the Basilica that St. Francis recognized his vocation in the year 1208, and it was where St. Francis spent most of his life. In 1211, the Benedictines gave him the little chapel of St. Mary of the Angels or the Portiuncula, which is a “little portion” of land. The first Franciscan convent was also formed nearby. The Portiuncula was also where St. Francis received the vows of St. Clare. St. Francis died here on October 3, 1226, and on his deathbed, he recommended the chapel to the faithful protection and care of his brothers. The Museo della Basilica is in another section of the convent. Among the most important works kept here are the "Crucifix “painted on wood by Giunta Pisano (1236-40). The return of Francis, a penitent man, contemplating his future in the Church... But God had other plans, and Francis did not travel far. His search for conversion led him to the ancient church at San Damiano. While he was praying there, he heard Christ on the crucifix speak to him, "Francis, repair my church." Francis assumed this meant the crumbling building he was in. He later realized it was his call to rebuild the entire Church. He read the command to the rich young man to sell all his good and give to the poor, the order to the apostles to take nothing on their journey, and the demand to take up the cross daily. "Here is our rule," Francis said -- as simple, and as seemingly impossible, as that. He was going to do what no one thought possible any more -- live by the Gospel.
