Spiritual Support

In 1999 my Dachshund Billy suffered two ruptured discs that pinched his spinal cord rendering him paralyzed from the waste down. Although he felt no pain physically, his fear overwhelmed him. Within three days, Billy was blessed to have over 400 people pray for him. He felt their prayers, describing the energy as uplifting and making him feel safe and warm. He was treated holistically and was back on his paws in two months. Without a doubt, the prayers and Billy’s gratitude for them were vital to his healing. Other than friends, family and clients, loving strangers joined us in prayer.

Light a candle with Gratefulness

St. Francis of Assisi being patron of animals, share  Billy’s favorite prayer with your pets and all your friends.

If you’re inspired by St. Francis and what he stood for, you may turn to those who know him best at The National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi.
