Francis and the Wolf by John August SwansonHappy Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi! Today we celebrate the ways that God has moved in the life of Saint Francis and been gift to the Church and world. Francis of course was known for many things including his love for all creatures great and small. For the last few years our custom here at A Nun's Life is to honor Saint Francis by praying a Litany of the Pets during our livestreaming weekday prayer podcast.

We invite you to include your pets in the Litany. Just write their names in the “comment” area below and we’ll bring them into prayer this evening.

Join the nuns and prayer community for a live prayer podcast and chat tonight at 5 pm ET at
