Digital download: An all-age communion inspired by the story of St Francis of Assisi. For use on 4th October, the Feast of St Francis, or at other times. Includes a blessing of animals.
‘Francis believed we should pay attention to everything God made, not just people who need help but every single thing around us. He thought that the spirit of life within each creature calls to that same spirit of life in all other creatures. That’s why we feel sorry for animals when they’re young or hurt and need help. And we feel for plants growing, even the ground we walk on and the stars in the sky, because we remember God cares for every precious little detail in the world. In the whole universe, even!’
