saint francis of assisi - st. of animals
Patron Saint of Animals
Each SAINT Candle comes with a prayer to the patron saint, holy oil as part of the wax (blessed by both a priest and a rabbi), and an Italian prayer coin embedded into the candle honoring the patron saint which reveals itself once the candle has burned down.
Prayer on candle cover:
Saint Francis of Assisi, protector of animals, you help us appreciate God’s gift of all living creatures. We especially thank you for protecting our friendly pets who help us get through trying times. Please bless my pet (name pet) who gives me such joy. Enlighten our minds so that we might help preserve all of God’s creatures, especially those endangered by our encroachment and neglect. Amen.
