Here is St. Francis of Assisi’s Blessing to Brother Leo. Saint Francis of Assisi is the Patron Saint of Animals. His feast day is on October 4th and the Church holds ceremonies for blessing animals on his feast day. How blessed would our lives be if we could utter this simple Blessing when we meet people in our daily lives.
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May he show his face to you and be merciful to you,
May he turn his countenance to you and give you peace.
May the Lord bless you. Amen
