5 Things this priest learned from his dog (VIDEO)

Zelda Caldwell - published on 10/14/17

Fr. Bill Byrne talks about the life and spiritual lessons he’s learned from his dog Roo.

What can a dog teach a priest about love and God? Quite a bit, according to the Archdiocese of Washington’s Fr. Bill Byrne. In this short video, he shares with us 5 lessons he learned from his dog Roo.

“I’m a dog guy. I’ve always had dogs and I love them. And I think that one of the reasons that God put this awesome animal on the Earth was to teach us about Him,” says Fr. Byrne.
