Veneration of the Lamb

“Lamb of God, you who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us!”

“What has happened to our instinct for unity?  The creatures know the rhythm of the earth.   They have not forgotten the oneness of which we are a part.  So in the Celtic world, they are messengers of Christ, the One who comes to reconnect us to the Heart of Being.”  (Christ of the Celts by J. Philip Newell)


Giving Thanks to the Animals

RSCN2627_edited-1

On the day those in the U.S. set aside for giving thanks, I thank God for the animals who have led me on a higher path in my life.  Animals have been among my best teachers.

HAPPY DAY OF GRATITUDE TO ALL!

Do Lions Feel?

This video should put to rest any doubt that  all animals are sentient beings.  I feel badly that this lion is trapped in a zoo but at least he was saved from death.  Obviously never forgot his saviour.

Wool Woes for Sheep

Again, a hard decision over whether to post or not to post, because the material is very disturbing.  But it seems to be better to educate people as to what is going on in farms in the United States and Australia and how sheep suffer unspeakable torture.  Why?  So man can buy wool.  Sheep, innocent sheep are in, as Isaac Bashevis Singer writes about all animals, “an eternal Treblinka. “

Please don’t buy wool.  Other materials such as Polartec are as good for keeping warm, if not better, and are good for the environment, and most importantly, no animal is harmed to make the material.


Sir Paul McCartney on Animal Suffering

WARNING: This post is graphic in nature.  I have long debated whether to post it or not.  It features Paul McCartney speaking on the nightmare of slaughter houses and showing how animals are horrifically mistreated.  But if we subject animals to these horrors by creating a market for meat than the very least we can do is suffer the discomfort of watching a video showing how our meat comes to our tables.  Paul McCartney got me well on my way to being totally vegetarian which seems to be in the offing as I think more and more of any kind of meat as flesh of innocents.


The Horrors of Horse Racing

All that you see on this video is true.  This is just the tip of the iceberg.  My brother worked on many racetracks, including Belmont, and he told us stories that were heartbreaking.  He finally got out of the race track business because he loved horses but could not abide the cruelty of how horses were treated.  The video explains…
