In the city of Gravatá in Brazil, there are many stray dogs in need of a forever home. So, a priest has decided to invite the strays into his church and has made them a part of his service.
Father João Paulo Araujo Gomes who is the head of the parish of Santana brings them to mass in hopes to convince families to adopt them.
The kind priest houses them at his rectory, ready to take them to Sunday service and show them off. The dogs take centre stage at the service so potential new owners can watch them and fall in love. Pooches, who sometimes fall asleep at the altar, are also down for some petting and belly rubs.
Dogs provide us with unconditional love, laughter, and precious memories and it’s nothing less than fair to pay them back. Whether you are a faithful believer in God or not, as long as you believe in kindness and compassion, we can slowly make the world a better place.
