He's even blessed an earthworm
Over the years, Father Clifford Augustine, the parish priest of Church of St Mary of the Angels, has blessed creatures both big and small, furry and feathery.
These include hamsters, rabbits, cats, dogs, turtles, terrapins and birds.
But the jovial priest was stumped for a moment when he was asked, "What is the strangest pet you've blessed?"
The 50-year-old then burst into laughter and said: "I wasn't going to say earthworm, but yes, I have blessed an earthworm.
"It was a pet. But I have not seen that person (who had brought the earthworm) any more."
And if you assumed it was a child who had presented Father Augustine with that single earthworm, you would be wrong. The owner was an adult.
Added Father Augustine: "To each his own. He (the man with the earthworm) saw a bigger picture in Creation.
"Even an earthworm, which is good for our ecology, needs to be treasured by the human race."
