Saint Francis’ Blessing

here is a blessing by Saint Francis of Assisi for all our 4-legged friends:

Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
On the fifth and sixth days of creation,
you called forth fish in the sea,
birds in the air, and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all animals
his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this animal.
By the power of your love,
enable [him or her] to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you
for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.

I should have published this one on the 4th of October, however, my mom was really busy.

On October 4, people all over the world have been celebrating the feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals, Saint Francis of Assisi. It’s customary that in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures, animals are led to churches for a special ceremony called the “Blessing of the Animals.” Every year, millions of animals are blessed by priests in a ceremony that touches the hearts of most of those in attendance.

In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this

Just think of the old Egypt. We were considered sacred.  Some of us were even given the same mummification after death as humans.

Time spend with cats is never wasted

Yes, how true.  Any time my mom spends with me, is time well spend for her and me. Just ask your feline companion.
