Saint Francis of Assisi was purportedly a lover of animals, so each year on his feast day, beloved pets are brought to the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine for a special service. The ceremony includes a procession of unusual animals up the nave, and afterward clergymen dole out individual blessings to Rover and Mr. Whiskers.
