Blessing of the Animals

Barks and blessings were heard at the Ysleta Mission for the annual Blessing of the Animals. The annual service coincides with the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals.
Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures. You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters. We ask you to bless these pets.
