Blessing for a rat



It wasn't quite the pedigreed Siberian hamster as Father Russell Trickey, tongue-in-cheek, suggested.

It was more like a rat. Well it was a rat.

But along with other of God's creatures, including dogs, horses and a cow, the rat, Snoopy, was blessed by Father Trickey at the annual blessing of the animals at Bangalow's All Souls Anglican Church on Sunday.
