Russian Monastery’s Adorable Daily Procession of Cats

via YouTube/Optina Ru

Optina Monastery is an Eastern Orthodox refuge in Kozelsk, Russia. A daily procession of blessings is among the many ancient rituals followed by the monks who live there.

As Father Sergey Kuzmich walks the grounds, giving blessings to the monks, the cats join him and are blessed, too. The monasteryis home to ten stray cats who are given shelter in exchange for their skills at pest control.

Via Buzzfeed:

Kuzmich doesn’t call the cats, but he manages to give them a blessing along the way. The walk just became a habit for them. The monastery found it charming, and made a video to show “something simple and kind.”

Watch the video by the Optina Monastery. It’s sure to bring a smile to your face:

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
