Franciscan order Francis of Assisi: He was living in 12 th century as the son of a wealthy merchant in central Italy. Once he got ill, he had a dream of God calling him. God told him to save his church. Firstly, he focused on physical renovations of the church but finally realized that the call was more about the spiritual repel of church. Then, he became a monk, establishing Franciscan order. The problems: there repeatedly was a concern that the established church had investigated them too many in worldly affairs, too wealthy and powerful, too much associated with the elite and the powerful in society, rather than the poor, the unprivileged in the society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
