When Madeline Finn attends the Blessing of the Animals with Bonnie and Star, she learns that everyone has a gift inside, which they can share with the world. And one way that Madeline Finn can share her blessing is with the animals at her local shelter.
It’s a special day! Madeline Finn is taking Bonnie and Star to the Blessing of the Animals. When they arrive, they see dogs and cats. There’s even a goat!
Madeline Finn watches closely as the Reverend Mary Alice spends time with every animal, giving each one their very own blessing.
“How do you know what to say?” Madeline Finn wants to know.
“Everyone has a blessing inside,” Miss Mary explains. “A special gift to share with the world.”
When Madeline Finn receives a blessing all her own, she has a new mission: finding the blessings in others. Surely, the furry and feathery residents at her local animal shelter have lots of special gifts to share. They just need someone to believe in them—someone to set those blessings free.
