The former cathedral of Assisi, Santa Maria Maggiore (St. Mary Major) is pictured here. Next to it is the bishop’s residence, or Vescovado. After a rupture with his father, St. Francis stripped off his clothes in front of this church, renouncing his worldly father and placing his trust only in “Our Father who art in heaven.”
