Just across the isle

When I entered church this morning I was surprised to see an orange cat walking up the center isle toward me. Then I remembered that today was the Feast of St. Francis. I learned that the cat was named Martha and she has been coming to church on St. Francis’s feast day for many, many years. Someone told me she is 14 years old. Martha sat several places in the church. She did not stay with her owners, but wandered around greeting people. However, she stayed still and attentive during the sermon.


I made a little YouTube video. You can see it if you click on the picture.

It's a joy to know God's house is open to all who enter.

When Jack picked her up to carry her to the front of the church to get her "blessing" she dug her claws into his shirt. I don't know why she comes and is so calm and pleasant since every time she is in church she get sprinkled with water.
