Pooches receive blessings during special mass at Lima monastery

CA, 11 Oct 2021
Animal lovers brought their pets to be blessed during a special mass on Sunday for their pooches and other pets at the Saint Francis Monastery in Lima, Peru.

The blessing is known as the annual “Blessing of the Animals” mass, which honours St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
