Blessing the Animals

Prayers and Ceremonies to Celebrate God's Creatures, Wild and Tame
  • By Lynn Caruso
Product Description

Celebrate the Mystery, Compassion, Wonder and Beauty of Animals

Take a spiritual journey through this beautiful collection of blessings, prayers and meditations about the creatures, wild and tame, that inhabit our world. These moving contributions about all types of animals--playful dogs and beloved cats, giant whales and powerful elephants, tiny insects and delicate birds--are drawn from many faith traditions, including Native American, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist.

A special section also provides animal blessing ceremonies you can use to memorialize the loss of a companion animal, offer prayers for an animal suffering illness or injury or simply recognize the spiritual connection we create when we fully appreciate another member of God's creation.
