"Blessed are you, Lord God,
Maker of all living creatures.
On the fifth and sixth days of creation,
you called forth fish in the sea,
birds in the air and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all animals
his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless these animals gathered about us.
By the power of your love,
enable these creaturesour sisters and brothersto
live according to you plan.
May we always praise you for your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen."
Gentle St. Francis I bring you thanks for (name of pet) who lived among us and gave us freely of his/her love. Please watch over my pet and keep him/her safe. Amen
Dear Lord it hurts me more to see my cat Java going through this trauma as I can do nothing. Please keep it safe in paradise. Amen
Our Father in heaven, You are the giver of life and the one who takes it. You created everything in heaven and on earth including my pet. I thank you for giving me this pet and now that it has departed from this earth, please make my pet's soul comfortable in the afterlife, Amen
We honor the memory of our precious pet with the warm light of this candle, sending to all our beloved pets a message of peace and love. We, as pet caregivers, bring our loss and sorrow to this place and together we ask that day by day our grief will
be lessened. Each day let us continue to see how the relationship we had with our beloved pet still impacts our lives today.
We gather today joining hearts as we honor the loss of our beloved pet (pet's name) who made our days and our lives more enjoyable. Someday we hope to meet with you again (pet's name) in eternity with hugs, kisses and tears. We miss your daily presence
and unending love in our daily lives. Death ends a life but our relationship still lives on in my heart and in my memory of times we spent together. You are now free running the fields where we will meet again. You are
restored to complete health. You are in God's loving care forever.
Dear God, we bring our grief in the loss of (pet's name) to you and ask for the courage to move through our grief. We bring you all our thanks for (pet's name) who we were blessed to have as our precious pet. She/he gave so freely of his/her love to all
those who she'd meet. We commit our beloved pet and companion into your loving hands. Surround us with your love and give us others to support us as we mourn.
Lord, in Your mercy I have returned my pet to You. In Your mercy I believe You hold him in Your heart for his faithful service to me on earth. I pray that I might have peace of mind and presence of spirit to know that You are indeed in control. I bring my petition before You, in the name of the Good Shepherd. Amen
