Bless Your Animals:Animal blessings can take different forms. Here is a prayer often used by those who conduct animal blessings.

“Blessed are you, Lord God / Maker of all living creatures. / On the fifth and sixth days of creation, you called forth fish in the sea, / birds in the air and animals on the land. / You inspired St. Francis to call all animals his brothers and sisters. / We ask you to bless these animals gathered about us.

Amen.”
