A "Dog Day" Blessing
      On the morning of October 12th, 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, as in previous years had the honor of leading the people in prayer during the ceremony.  This year, it was an all dog cast which included the monastery’s newly adopted Labrador mix, Roxie!  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.
