Today is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Now even if you do not believe in any of this Christian saint stuff, your dog, cat, bird or whatever pet you have, may have some faith and want to be taken to a nearby church that is on the ball and blessing animals today. Yes, on the Feast of this saint a lot of churches bless animals. This is because St. Francis loved animals and all living things. He was very ecological. In the ceremony today, your pet gets baptized with holy water, the same kind of blessed water that baptizes people. Your pet is your blessed friend. Why not get a little blessed water sprinkled onto them.
