Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
April 20, 2015

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:


Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman

The Annual Baby Harp Seal Killing Has Begun.  The killing started on April 12 in northeastern Newfoundland, southern Labrador and the Gulf of St. Lawrence.  Animal rights organizations, are, as always, demanding an end to this barbaric and senseless “tradition.”  Many restaurants have joined in boycotting Canadian seafood.   I can remember marching and protesting this hunt with my kids back in the late ‘70’s.  Many of you may have participated as well.  The unfailing campaigns around the world have succeeded in banning the importation of seal products in several countries, including the European Union, the United States, and Mexico.  So there has been some progress and much of the world agrees that wearing fur stolen from a helpless, innocent baby is immoral.
This Week is Also World Week for Animals in Labs and Earth Day is the 22nd.  There has been tremendous progress also on the laboratory front.  Out of the 188 medical schools in the US and Canada, only two of them use animals in their training, thanks to the work of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (pcrm.org).  According to Aryenish Birdie of PCRM, 92% of drugs that pass in experiments on animals fail when used on human beings. As awareness of that statistic grows, cruelty-free methods of testing drugs are being adopted more widely.   And Earth Day celebrations around the world are giving activists an opportunity to educate about the environmental devastation caused by animal agriculture.  Many people will make a commitment to veganism on that special day.
As a Prayer Circle We Combine our Prayer Power with the Actions Taking Place. Progress has been made through the tireless dedication of activists all over the world.  Human consciousness is evolving in the direction of compassion and reverence for life.  I know it seems agonizingly slow and painful as we consider those who are still suffering. But we are witnessing miracles—the expansion of the circle of compassion and the decrease of violence that many said could never happen.  So this week, let us go within and deeply feel the joy that comes from seeing our kind and gentle vegan world  blossoming around the world.  Yes--we grieve, but as we grieve for those still suffering, we simultaneously feel the joy for those liberated.  That beautiful celebratory gratitude filling our hearts will help stop the killing, open the cage doors, and enlighten millions of people at Earth Day events.  Together we can do this.  We will see more miracles.
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you, dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all beings will live in peace together.

May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings everywhere. 
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
