Blessing of the Animals


After all the rain we have had this week, I thought we would be reduced to blessing only goldfish by today. But the rain abated and though the attendance was, well, dampened, a number of hardy souls came with their pets to the waterfront for the service. Father Gabe sprinkled lots of holy water while I prayed, trying not to pray up a storm.


Jason and Lucas


Father Gabe Cummings and myself finished with a dash over the the Humane Society in Kingsland where we blessed all the animals.

peace,

    How come you didn't just bless the *clouds*? Then like, all the water would be Holy, and then you wouldn't even have to go.
    hee! My mother says I should stop it with these jokes, I say she doesn't know anything (Catholic).

    Denise,

    King of Peace is a melting pot of various religions. I would be careful who you put down, even if it is with humor. Somebody may get offended.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm...The priest pictured above with Father Frank is a Catholic priest and the president of the Humane Society is also a Catholic who attends his church.

    It is a beautiful act of compassion that they take the time to personally bless and care for all of God's creation.
