    St. Francis loved nature and wrote that he saw God’s love for us in what he called Brother Sun, Sister Moon, Brother Wind, Sister Water, Brother Fire, and Mother Earth. He especially enjoyed the company of animals, so we honor him on his feast day by blessing the animals that are important in our own lives. We can also celebrate by making our own animal face masks so we can pretend to be animals, too! Download instructions for how to make a basic mask, plus suggestions for how to make a cat, bunny, bear, and fox. But you can use your imagination to make any animal!
