David on St. Francis Feast day. 2 Comments Mary Anne Burkardt on October 13, 2017 at 10:14 am What a beautiful idea and moving scene to see these ‘favorites’ of Jesus coming to Him with their favorite pets for blessing! Thanks to all involved with that beautiful event! Rosemarie Kirwan on October 13, 2017 at 8:54 am Jesus invited the little children to come to him. He must have been so pleased to see their little sources of comfort so honored. Blessings on all those who thought of this and brought it to actuality.
