On this Feast of St. Francis we ask for your blessing of the pets with which we share our homes and our lives.  Offering unconditional love and companionship, our pets bring joy in times of sadness and sorrow and often brighten otherwise ordinary days with their loving presence. We also ask that you remember and bless all pets in need of love, care, and a welcoming home.

Help us Lord to be faithful and kind stewards of these pets you have entrusted to our care. Let us never lose sight of our responsibilities to and for our pets, especially on those days when we may not be our best selves. 

And, help us to remember all animals, as well as our responsibilities as stewards of the earth, reminding us to do all that we can to protect and preserve the planet, honoring all that you created. We ask this in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen.
