Day 205: The Blessing of the Animals

Today is the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and ecology.  Our church had a blessing of the animals service via Zoom.   Participants brought their dogs and cats to their computer to receive the blessing from our priest.

I don’t have any pets right now.   I attended the Zoom anyway and requested that we remember the variety of creatures that live in my backyard:    squirrels, feral cats, raccoons, hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and a family of raucous crows.   They are part of the ecology of neighborhood.

Also, here is something else in honor of the day:
