Drive-thru pet blessing in Manila on feast of St Francis

Pet lovers in Manila received blessings for their animals via a drive-through ceremony on Sunday to celebrate the feast of Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals, despite restrictions imposed to stem the spread of the coronavirus. A row of vehicles lined up outside a mall in Manila as pet owners patiently waited for their turn to drive forward to have a priest sprinkle holy water on their mostly canine companions, on the day which is also known as World Animal Day.
