Video: Blessing of Animals

We celebrated the commemoration of St. Francis with the blessing of animals at Messiah Lutheran Church (Weatherford, Texas) last week, but I don't have any video.

My pal Pastor Eric Shafer sent a link to video shot at Trinity in Lansdale, Pa., so we can all enjoy the occasion.

Ann, I love this...I think remembering G-d's creatures is so important and it's heartwarming to hear when churches are doing this.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
