Welcome
O God, you have done
all things wisely; you have
 made in your image
and given us care over
other living things.

Reach out with your hand and grant that these animals may
serve our needs and
that your bounty in the resources of this life may move us to seek more confidently the goal of eternal life.

AMEN


God created us and
place us on this earth
to be the stewards of
all living things
and so to proclaim
the glory
of their creator. 

Blessed be God forever!


That our lives 
will always remain centered in the Lord
and that they will,
like Saint Francis
always recognize
the beauty and wonder
of God's creation.


Blessed be God Forever.

O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!

That we
will remember
to treat all living things with the same care
and concern as did Saint Francis.

Blessed be God forever!

Blessing
