Brazilian Priest: Father of Many Dogs

Father João Paulo Araujo Gomes of Sant'Ana Parish in Gravatá, Brazil, takes care of abandoned and injured dogs, and finds a new home for them.

He uses his homilies to convince his parishioners to adopt dogs living with him in the parish (, November 28).

In his Instagram account, Gomes shares photos and videos of the dogs. On Sundays, he takes them to Mass which his parishioners like very much.


So he takes the dogs to mass and the people love it; I'm sure they all find it entertaining, which is the point of many Novus Ordo services today
...and every centavo he spends on those animals is one he COULD have spent on the human poor and needy. Great priorities, padre.
The pastor at our local Catholic church brings his dog with him into the confessional. When you are in there you cant help but look at the dog when confessing. Its a distraction. We quit going there.
