I just learned that October 4th is the Blessing of the Animals in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. KDKH posted her post about this, please go check it out. It’s a BEAUTIFUL prayer. I knew nothing about St. Francis until now but I was very happy to learn. Yes, it is a religious partake but beyond that fact, having a day to bless the animals that surrounds us, I think is beautiful.
I share all special days with my parrids (remember Kodak was my valentine this year, 2018) but to have a specific day for them is sweet. I will definitely be blessing the animals on this day going forward.
On October 4th, people were having a feast and saying prayers for all the animals and although I missed out on the feast, I will be sure to say a prayer not only for my lovely parrots but for myself, my kids, my followers and subscribers because regardless of my or your religion, it can’t hurt to have some positive words covering us. Remember, humans are mammals therefore we, too, are animals.
