The Feast of St. Francis


Blessed are you, Creator God, maker of all living creatures. You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters. We ask you to bless our pets.* By the power of your love, enable them to live according to your plan. May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation. Blessed are you, Holy God, in all your creatures! Amen.”
