3rd Annual Remember Me Thursday
A very special candle lighting ceremony in remembrance of unwanted and abandoned pets
who never found homes, as well as our beloved pets who died this past year.
Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering;
for any that are lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put to sleep to end their misery.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity.
And for those who care for the animals, we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals
and so to share the blessings of the merciful. Amen.
