Reviewer Comments:

This short podcast is part of the Meet Me at the Corner series. It is a virtual field trip to NYC’s St. John’s Cathedral of the Divine for a feast and blessing of the animals. A boy leads us on this visit and interviews the priest who blesses the animals and talks about St. Francis. We see the animals inside and outside of the church and learn about this tradition. This interesting video is well produced, highly informational and does indeed bring a piece of NYC to students all over the world.
