St. Francis of Assisi - Blessing of the Animals

St. Francis of Assisi – Blessing of the Animals

World Animal Day is celebrated each year on October the 4th. It  started in Florence,  Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. On this day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are planned in locations all over the globe. The 4th of October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment.
