Franciscan Pet Blessing
Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
You inspired St. Francis
to call all animals
his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this animal.
By the power of your love,
enable it to live
according to your plan. Amen.

(Many people bless their pets with this prayer)
— St. Francis in San Francisco
