St. Francis of Assisi’s Love For All Creatures

Pastor Karl Gronberg, of Gethsemane Lutheran Church,  offers blessings and prayers to the Austin Humane Society shelter dogs and cats on St. Francis Day. The blessing of animals is conducted in remembrance of the saint’s love of all creatures. Many animals at the shelter survived the Bastrop fires and are unclaimed and ready for adoption. Pastor Gronberg makes his rounds in the dog kennels much to the delight of the barking dogs as he offers his blessings.
