Franciscan Pet Blessing
Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
You inspired St. Francis to call all
animals his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless our pets. By
the power of your love, enable
our pets to live according to your plan.
Amen.

Thank you to everyone who sent in a photo.
