Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures. You called fish forth from the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land. You inspired Saint Francis to call all of them his sisters and brothers. We ask you to bless these pets we spoke of today. By the power of your love enable them all to live according to your plan. May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation. Blessed are you, Lord God, and all your creatures. Amen.
