St. Francis of Assisi and Animal Day

This week, me and my son, saw the movie about Gandhi, and for those that didn't know, his birthday is on the 2 of October.

Gandhi was one of those rare souls that sometimes arise and because of their grandeur and capacity for sacrifice, embarrass us!

One of Gandhi quotes is: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated.” … brings to mind the greatness of our nation …

This week, on the 4 of October, we celebrate St. Francis of Assisi and Animal day !

 St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi was dear to my father and he always said that when he would dye it was to his heavenly garden he would go to help St. Francis of Assisi to take care of the animals over there, so it is where I imagine my father soul.

For those that don’t know St. Francis of Assisi, he was a man that was born in a very rich family and along his live path decided to dedicate his life to the church and animals. He defended the ideal of a brotherhood that would integrate men with nature and animals.
For him each living being was an expression of God kindness and to love an animal was to love God and his creation.

This year, I lost one of my oldest friend, that was with me since the beginning of my adult life. To her as to the rest of my lost four leg family, I dedicate my memory and prays.
