Cynthia, I've now posted on this topic at my blog:
  As I note there, I doubt that this legend about St. Francis has much if any connection either to Malachi 4:2 or to Charles Wesley, for the 'winged Christ' is wounding rather than healing St. Francis (though I suppose that it is a spiritual healing).
  I've linked to a few other images illustrating the same story of St. Francis, too.

Hmmm. These are interesting. Thanks. I do wonder, however, how likely it is that Charles Wesley would have [a] known about them or [b] used them if he did.

Again, thanks
