I couldn’t find a prayer to St. Guinefort, so I wrote one.
Prayer to St. Guinefort
St. Guinefort was a good
doggie who lived near Lyons
When his master left to
St. Guinefort protected
his master’s child from
a snake by killing the
When his master returned
and saw St. Guinefort
covered in blood and
did not see his child,
he killed poor St. Guinefort
The master then saw his child
and the dead snake
Feeling terrible that he killed
his best and most trusted friend,
He buried St. Guinefort with all
the honors a doggie saint deserves
Many people visit St. Guinefort’s shrine
to ask for protection of their children
and bring flowers and treats
because you can’t keep a good doggie down.
