Bearded Dragons and the Blessing of the Animals
On Sunday we had our St. Francis Blessing of the Animals, and we said prayers and sprinkled water on quite a collection of God's wonderful creation. Many dogs, one cat (our 19-year-old Chrissy, brave veteran of many St. Francis days).
Award for the most exotic animal? Joanna's pet Bearded Dragon, a lizard native to Australia.
We also had a procession of the animals in the new Meditation Garden.
