Playful Dog Interrupts Church Service, And The Priest Takes It In Stride

Father José Geraldo Sobreira was leading mass at Paróquia Nossa Senhora das Dores in Brazil when a surprise guest showed up. And this visitor put a smile on the face of the priest as he became giddy with excitement. And who can blame him? 🙂

A dog had shown up out of nowhere, and instead of chasing him away, the priest embraced the pup and gave in to his playfulness! You can watch Father José Geraldo Sobreira pet the dog while wearing the biggest smile all while continuing to participate in the service.

No one knows where the dog came from, but the situation garnered a lot of attention and praise for the priest for how he handled the situation.

“Beautiful father! I loved your gesture!” said one commenter. “Each day that passes I realize animals are in this world to teach us what pure love is, and that all humans should spread it.”
