Spanish pets queue for blessing on St. Anthony’s Day

General January 17, 2014

A cat owner queues with her pet to have it blessed by a priest at San Anton church in Madrid on Saint Anthony's Day, on January 17, 2014Dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets and more exotic pets flocked to a Madrid church on Friday to be blessed with holy water on Saint Anthony's Day. In the city centre, long queues of owners and pets stretched to the doors of the Church of Saint Anthony, patron saint of animals. "Through Saint Anthony, receive this blessing," intoned 70-year-old priest Manuel Perez as he sprinkled drops of holy water on a terrier puppy. Owners come for the blessing so their pets will be "cared for from here to up there," said 21-year-old model Alvaro Lopez, with his long-nosed, racoon-like coati.
