This weekend was the annual Blessing of the Animals at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Morningside Heights, and photographer Katie Sokoler was there to capture all the noble beasts on camera. The blessings are part of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, famous for his advocacy for harmony between human beings and the natural world. Earlier in the week, shelter animals were blessed at the magnificent cathedral, and yesterday, despite the drizzle, pet owners gathered at the church to collect their blessings. Inside, more exotic animals—including a camel, llama, donkey, mini horse, pig, kangaroo, and fennec fox—were paraded down the aisle of the church.

Last year the kangaroo was carried down the aisle by Sopranos star Edie Falco, who was noticeably absent this year. It's no surprise that this year the kangaroo "freaked out," according to Sokoler, who tells us "he did not want to be held and started kicking." If HBO has taught us anything, it's that only Carmela can soothe the bouncy beast. Check out our photos from last year, and then feast your eyes on Sokoler's stunning photos of the Cathedral's peacocks.

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002.
He was born with two legs. He, of course, could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.

His first owner did not think he could survive and was thinking of 'putting him to sleep.' But then his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him. She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself. She named him 'Faith.'

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement. Later, she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around.  Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk.  Amazingly, after only six months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward. After further training in the snow, he could walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.  No matter where he goes, he attracts people. He is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared in newspapers and on TV shows.  There is now a book titled 'With a Little Faith' being published about him.  He was even considered to appear in one of the Harry Potter movies.



His present owner, Jude Stringfellow, has given up her teaching post and plans to take him around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a 'perfect soul.'























In life there are always undesirable things,so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.  I hope this message will bring fresh, new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.  Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.
