Tara unpacks a Jesus story about intimate relationships. Guest Father Luke Fodor talks about Father Bernard’s Blessed Biscuits, a new social enterprise of Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church and the Mental Health Association in Chautauqua County that supports recovery and mental health efforts. If you are in the Syracuse NY area, Tara invites you to bring your pet for a blessing! The Blessing of the Animals service is Friday 8/1/21 at 6pm at King of Kings Lutheran Church in Liverpool, NY.
A blessing for all living creatures in honor of St. Francis...
Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures.
You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air, and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this pet.
By the power of your love, enable it to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures!
