September 11, 2013: A Prayer for the Animals

~ by Sr. Marie Rene, S.S.J.

Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals.
We entreat for them all your mercy and pity.
And for those who deal with them we ask for a heart of compassion,
gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us ourselves to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessing of the merciful.
For the sake of Your Son, the tender-hearted Jesus, Our Lord.
(Found in an old book of prayers, translated from Russian)

In the love of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Sister Rene
