Good and Gentle St. Francis of Assisi

Posted on

 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.

  1. I’m such a huge fan of Mother Mary Francis. I went searching to find this title. It’s one of the Patron Saint books, right? But she was Sister Mary Francis at the time. Only found 2 copies out there…bought one. Thanks for the tip!
