Dear St. Francis,

Encourage the animals to come to your table and share in the gifts of God’s bounty. Help them feel safe with you, because they are safe with you. Let them know that they are loved by God and cherished by us who love them.

Let me take this opportunity to thank you for your intercession on behalf of my dear departed pet (fill in name here). In this time of great sadness I put all my trust in your care for both him/her/themself and me.

Saint Francis Prayer For Departed Pets

Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals, was a man who loved animals so much that he had a special devotion to them. He is known for having preached that all creatures should be treated with charity and respect. In his book “The Canticle of Creatures,” he describes how God speaks in the voice of birds, and how all living things are part of God’s family. This devotion to all creatures led Saint Francis to pray specifically for pets after they die:

Saint Francis Prayer For Departed Pets

Dear Lord

May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your son our savior. Amen

you loved all of God’s creatures.

The St. Francis Prayer is a spiritual practice that has been used by people to honor the memory of their beloved pets. It is a beautiful petition, calling down the blessings of God on all creatures great and small, asking for peace and harmony in our world. The prayer was written by St. Francis of Assisi, who was known for his love of animals and nature in general. He once said “Not to harm our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission: to be of service to them wherever they require it.”

To you, they were your brothers and sisters. They were a part of the family. They were God’s creatures, teachable and good. You loved them as we do now—and we love them still. We know you’re happy to be with your pets again, even though they have passed away. We are grateful for all the joy they brought into your life while they were here on earth with you.

Help us to follow your example of treating every living thing with kindness.

Show us how to be kind to all living things. Help us to follow your example of treating every living thing with kindness. We pray for our pets, and for all animals who are suffering, that you might lead them to safety. We pray for the earth and its plants, that we might care for them with loving attention and work toward a healthy balance between humans and nature. And we pray for ourselves as well, so that we may remain open-hearted even when it seems impossible; so that our hearts will not harden when tragedy strikes; so that we can remember those who have passed on before us; so that when death comes again, it brings peace rather than fear or anger along with it.”

St. Francis, Patron Saint of Animals, keep our pet close to you in your place of peace and protection where there is no pain or sorrow.

Help us to remember that his earthly life is but a small part of his eternal life.

Let him rest in your loving care until the day comes when he will be called home by you.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
