Blessing the beasts

If you are new to this blog, please consider visiting the Spirituality section of our diocesan Web site, where you can find resources for the upcoming feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Several of the daily meditations we’ve chosen for next week are devoted to Francis. Our Cathedral and several of our parishes, including this one and this one will be blessing animals in the days ahead.

You can watch a short video about the blessing of the animals at St. Columba’s parish by visiting this page, and clicking on Part 4.

Lois Wye wrote “Thinking theologically about animals” for the blog a few months back. And few people do that sort of thinking with more originality than our friend Sy Montgomery, author of The Good, Good Pig.
