(TruthSeekerDaily) It’s not every day you’ll see a dog in church, but in the small town of San Donaci near Brindisi, Italy, it’s a regular occurrence. A 12 year-old German Shepherd named Tommy goes to Mass nearly every day and sits patiently by the altar. He goes there out of love, he is just waiting for his master. But the real story behind his reason will break your heart.

The reason Tommy attends Mass at this church is because it’s where
he last saw his owner.

Now, he diligently waits for his master to come back. He curls up by
the altar to wait for Maria.
