Pray for us!
We will be reading Francis by Mother Mry Francis, P.C.C. This little gem of a book seems to be out of print now, I can’t place it on the web, though I’m not sure. The littles will do a coloring page and we will gather the pets outside for a blessing today.
Blessing for your pet
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 it 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.
