Photos: Filipinos mark feast of Saint Francis with blessing of pets

For the second straight year, animal lovers in the Philippine capital had their pets blessed in a “drive-thru” ceremony

For the second straight year, animal lovers in the Philippine capital had their pets blessed in a “drive-thru” ceremony due to health restrictions brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.

Aside from the observance of World Animal Day on October 4, the predominantly Catholic Philippines celebrates the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron of animals, on the same day. (Photos by Jire Carreon taken on the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi on October 4, 2020)
