Follow in the Footsteps
God Almighty, Eternal, Righteous, and Merciful, give to us poor sinners to do for thy sake all that we know of thy will, and to will always what pleases thee, so that inwardly purified, enlightened, and kindled by the fire of the Holy Spirit, we may follow in the footprints of thy well-beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.—St. Francis of Assisi.
Tomorrow at 9:30 a.m., King of Peace will take part (as we have for years) in an annual Blessing of the Animals in St. Marys. We will meet at the gazebo in the Waterfront Park for a brief service of blessing for the pets who bless us every day.
I will be blessing animals together with Fr. Gabe Cummings of Our Lady Star of the Sea and the Rev. Verdell Griffin of Wheeler Street Church of God. Come and bring your pets. I will bless the dogs and cats and leave the iguanas and snakes to the others. :-)
The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
