Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
December 15, 2014
Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to
uplift humanity's consciousness, and to bless the animals themselves.
Thank you for joining people around the world who are praying this
prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:
"COMPASSION ENCIRCLES THE EARTH FOR ALL BEINGS EVERYWHERE"
Rise of Human Consciousness Gets a Big Boost
Although the previous Pope, Benedict XVI, arrogantly declared that
animals “are not called to eternal life,” and that animals are never
mentioned in the Gospels, Pope Francis tells a much different
story. In a recent weekly talk at St. Peter’s Square, he declared
absolutely that animals go to heaven. According to inquisitr.com, he
quoted the Apostle Paul saying: “One day we will see our animals again
in eternity of Christ. Paradise is open to all God’s creatures.”
Further bolstering our spiritual connection to animals is the recent
release of Gracia Fay Ellwood’s new book Taking the Adventure: Faith
and Our Kinship with Animals. Gracia Fay is the editor of the
online journal “The Peaceable Table,” which contains a wealth of
articles to share. In her new book, she shows that, if we are to
“return to the heart of God” and bring Love to this planet as we are
meant to do, then we must learn to live in peace with all beings and
help others to do the same. This book would make a consciousness
raising gift for many of the loved ones on our lists.
Responding to those who claim vegans are trying to take the joy out of
holidays, Gracia Fay writes, “What we seek to end is, of course, not
Christmas, Thanksgiving, or any other celebration, but the institution
of animal slavery and killing that stains them with innocent blood…far
from destroying our way of life in the world, it would in fact help to
save both our cultural world from numbness to a vast evil, and the
physical world…Perhaps it will hasten the planet’s spiritual evolution
toward Peace on Earth among all the living as well.” (p. 63)
Prayer for Rising Consciousness and Peace on Earth for All Beings
This week let us give joyful thanks for Pope Francis’ public
declaration of respect for animals; Gracia Fay Ellwood’s new book; the
millions of activists committed to liberation and peace for all; the
innocent, infinite love we feel For and From the animals of earth; and
for the power of prayer and vision holding, combined with action.
In the face of ongoing cruelty and violence, we hold fast to the Truth
that Love dwells in every heart, and that human consciousness IS rising
out of the depths of ignorance and violence. We are becoming Homo
Ahimsa, the Kind and Gentle Human. And so it is.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy, and Will, Madeleine, and the Circle of Compassion team.
