BLESS­ING THE AN­I­MALS

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION+WORLD -

Peru: A Catholic priest blesses a par­rot dur­ing the bless­ing of pets out­side of the San Fran­cisco church dur­ing the feast day of St. Fran­cis of As­sisi in Lima, Peru, on Sun­day. Ac­cord­ing to tra­di­tion, many sto­ries sur­round the life of St. Fran­cis, who is the pa­tron saint of ecol­ogy, that say he had a great love for an­i­mals and the en­vi­ron­ment.
