Yesterday Saint Francis of Assisi was remembered and in his honor the pets were blessed in the Capuchin convents. From very early on, families arrived with different types of animals to be blessed, not only dogs but also turtles, parrots and cats.
The activity was carried out for two days, on Monday the 3rd and yesterday, people came from different parts of the metropolitan area. It was developed in Asunción, Mariano Roque Alonso, Caaguazú and Ciudad del Este.
The Capuchin Franciscans commented that pets are the work of God, that is why they asked that the grace and blessing of the creator be poured out on them.
Also, yesterday, the annual collection of personal hygiene products for the brothers and Capuchin students was carried out.
They remembered Saint Francis of Assisi whose life was characterized by dedication to the will of the Father. “We celebrate this simple man who was and continues to be an instrument of peace and inspiration to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. May Saint Francis intercede for each one of us and we can be like him, docile to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit”.
