    Porziuncola, is a small Catholic church located within the Papal Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels in Assisi in Assisi. It is the place where the Franciscan movement started.

    After a pilgrimage to Rome, where he had a picture of Jesus Christ in the wayside chapel of San Damiano, in which the Icon of Christ Crucified "Francis, Francis, go and repair My house which, as you can see, is falling into ruins". Francis took this literally to the ruined church and to assist the priest there for this purpose. His father Pietro, highly indignant, sought restitution. After a final interview in the bishop, Francis renounced his father and his patrimony, laying aside even the garments he had received from him. For the next couple of months lived in the region of Assisi. Returning to the town for two years, the little chapel of St Mary of the Angels, just outside the town.
