Cardinal John Henry Newman: it is satanic
Cruelty to animals is as if man did not love God…there is something so dreadful, so satanic, in tormenting those who have never harmed us, and who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power.”
~ Cardinal John Henry Newman
Prayer Circle for Friday
Prayers for wild animals being trapped, hunted, caged and/or killed for fur, flesh, leather, trophies, the pet trade, etc., and for wild animals being forced into stress and extinction due to loss of habitat.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all free-living animals.
Dear bears, foxes, cougars, deer, alligators, wild horses, wolves, prairie dogs, primates, mink, bison, beavers, elephants, birds, fish, whales, and all the other magnificent beings born in freedom and suffering now at the hands of human beings, living in fear of human beings, and mourning the loss of loved ones who have been tortured and either imprisoned or killed.
Together, we bear witness to your suffering, take action to end it forever, and send out an energy field of love and compassion to comfort you and to transform the hearts and souls of those who support the violent oppression of all of you. We send our tears and prayers on wings of love to you.
Our love is all around you. Compassion encircles the earth for each of you and for all beings.
