Saint Francis Day ~ Distant healing event for all animals

Saint Francis Day ~ World Animal Day

Sunday, 4 October 2009

All animals everywhere are welcome to be part of this event

The Earth Heal Clinic will be hosting a distant healing event for all animals around the world this Sunday, 4 October, on the Feast of Saint Francis, also known as World Animal Day. The treatment process will be starting at 2 pm local Brazilian time, or 5 pm GMT/Universal Time, and will continue for about 3 hours, ending around 8 pm GMT/Universal Time.

To view the starting time in your part of the world, please go to this link at the World Clock.

All pets and animals everywhere are welcome to join us for this event, either by being sponsored by their owners on a once-off donation basis or via annual membership to Earth Heal. Donations will go directly towards pet food and veterinary fees for animals currently being cared for as part of our rescue efforts in the village of Praia do Frances, Brazil. Homeless animals and animals belonging to disadvantaged people are included on a pro bono basis.

The treatment will be facilitated in Praia do Frances on the NE coast of Brazil by Edna Spennato, working under guidance from the collective Higher Self of the group. Five surrogates, in Brazil, South Africa, the Middle East, the United Kingdom, Germany and the USA, will anchor incoming healing energy during the treatment process and release energies “no longer needed” on behalf of the participants and the planetary morphic field as a whole.

General Info

During the treatment process, each animal participant will be worked on individually and as part of the group, anchoring the planetary healing energies in their part of the world for the larger collective consciousness of the animal kingdom, releasing disharmonic energy and receiving healing energy on an individual and collective level. We use a cutting-edge distant healing method known as Synchronization Harmonics.

If you would like to have your pet included in this event, please e-mail us their details and pics as soon as possible, and no later than midnight on 3 October.

Saint Francis

On October 4, people all over the world will be celebrating the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals. In memory of Francis' love for all creatures, millions of animals are traditionally led by their human caregivers to churches on this day for a special ceremony called the "Blessing of the Animals", where each animal is gently sprinkled with holy water by a monk in a brown robe, offering this prayer:

Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
On the fifth and sixth days of creation,
you called forth fish in the sea,
birds in the air, and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all animals
his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this animal.
By the power of your love,
enable [him or her] to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you
for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.

If an animal is ailing or sick, this prayer is used:

Heavenly Father,
you created all things for your glory
and made us stewards of this creature.
If it is your will, restore [him or her] to health and strength.
Blessed are you, Lord God,
and holy is your name forever and ever. Amen.

Many stories have been written about Saint Francis’ love for all animals, and it is said that he and his brother monks, staying in a small hovel, once allowed themselves to be displaced by a donkey. He wrote a Canticle of the Creatures, an ode to God's living things: "All praise to you, Oh Lord, for all these brother and sister creatures." And there was testimony in the cause for St. Clare of Assisi's canonization that referred to her little cat!

But perhaps the most amazing tale about his extraordinary ability to communite peacefully with animals comes from the taming of a savage wolf who had been terrorizing the people of Gubbio. It is said that Saint Francis was able to train it to go from door to door begging for food, rather than attacking the villagers, and that the wolf lived this way for two years among the townspeople before dying of old age, and being mourned.

The facilitator for the event, Edna, feels a special connection with Saint Francis, because his spirit has assisted her from time to time with group distant healing work and planetary work, for several years, and Edna also received her original Reiki training many years ago from a wonderful Franciscan nun in Cape Town named Rita Baptista.

There is still time to include your animal friends in this event, so please send details and pics of your own pets, as well as homeless animals or animals in difficult situations by midnight on Saturday, 3 October. All the info is at this link.
