The small church was founded by Cristina and Roger Lapis together with Maria and Bernard Giraldi and is dedicated to all the saints who protect animals. In a place of honor over the front door of the building, a stained glass window depicting “St. Francis of Assisi with the wolf.” Visitors to the sanctuary can now also visit the chapel. “God created animals before people , and the prophet Isaiah tells us that the future of humanity will be the comm in harmony between man and animal. As a testimony, history has given us wonderful stories of saints who have done wonders with animals. It is said that St. Seraphim of Sarov retired into the forest, where he was visited by birds and wild animals, and he fed them with bread. St. Francis tamed a wolf that terrorized an entire region, and St Gerasimos had a lion who was friends with donkeys and camels,” said Ms.Lapis.
