Arizona farm gives refuge from pain, for man and beast alike

An image of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals, hangs from a tree at the Selah Carefarm in Cornville, Ariz., Oct. 4, 2022. Across the farm, stories repeat of someone washed over by a wave of grief only to find an animal seem to offer comfort – a donkey nestling its face in a crying woman’s shoulder or a horse pressing its head against a grieving heart.
