The Blessing of Pets
      On the morning of October 13th, friends of our community brought their “special” companions with them to thank the Lord for the gift that they have been in their lives.  Fr. Gregory-David, the Sub-prior of our monastery, had the honor of blessing pets in honor of St. Francis of Assisi (whose feast was celebrated on October 4th).  The sunny day was a great opportunity for our neighbors, friends and those who usually come to the monastery for the Liturgy to bring their animal companions and ask for the Lord’s protection and blessing upon them.  It was also a delightful scene to watch the canines meet and interact both with each other and the people.
