Bless the Beasts

2 10 2008

This Sunday (October 5, 2008) is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals, the environment and our beloved town. In celebration, St. John’s Episcopal Church and several other churches will make a public blessing for animals.  People and critters will be gathering around 1:00 at Dolores Park (near the 19th Street entrance), after an 11:00 service at St. John’s.

Last year, they blessed dozens of dogs, a few cats, a rat, and a gecko!

If I were an animal, I think I’d like to be blessed. It couldn’t hurt, even for Miss Tilly (above), who’s currently celebrating the High Holy Days.


If you were an animal, what animal would you want to be, and who would you want to bless you?  Click on “comment” below.
