(Activist Post) Paróquia de Sant’Ana Gravatá hosts a very extraordinary event every Sunday. As the churchgoers attend Mass, the priest brings in dogs who would be acquainted with families. The hope is, someone would adopt those poor animals. A noble deed indeed!
Father João Paulo Araujo Gomes is the head of this church in Gravata, Brazil. And this amazing human being has started this endeavor where he invites dogs from all over the locality to attend Mass, and be at one with God and humanity. The doors of the Church, and apparently the priest’s heart, are always open.
And, it doesn’t need one to be an avid dog lover. One simply needs to be humane enough to understand that dogs are messengers of love and intense loyalty. You might not be a big animal lover, but love comes in many forms- simply accept it. →
