Pet Blessing at St. Anthony of Padua

Today(10/4), being the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, the local Franciscan parish, St. Anthony of Padua, had a pet blessing.  There were some birds, some cats, 3 chickens, lots of dogs and Jake!

Father read the Blessing from the Book of Blessings and then he went around and sprinkled every animal with Holy Water.
