The Senhora das Dores Church is located in Brazil.
One day, as the priest of the church, Father José Sobreira, was leading the Mass, he was pleasantly surprised by an unexpected visitor.
It was a four-legged friend, a dog, who entered the church wagging his tail.
However, the priest had no intention of sending the dog away.
To everyone’s surprise, Father José greeted the dog with a sweet smile and began to pet him gently.
The priest said he believed that dogs are loyal creatures and that they are on this earth to teach us what it means to have unbroken love.
The good dog nestled into the folds of Father José’s clothing and played happily.
Among the Mass attendees were those who recorded this heartwarming scene, where Father spoke of the purity and devotion of the dog while affectionately petting him.
This video was posted on the church’s official Facebook page, went viral, and received numerous likes.
In their comments, users praised Father José for his kindness and thanked him for his compassion.
“You are a kind-hearted man, I loved your kind gesture,” wrote one of the followers.
“The man with a heart of gold, Bravo, Father José!” commented another user on the priest’s behavior.
Most people thought like Father José. In their opinion, unconditional love for animals should serve as an example for humanity.
