When, oh when, is the Church going to raise its voice against animal
cruelty? The Spanish fiestas have begun, many having religious
origins, when frequently helpless creatures are tormented, tortured
and mutilated by men, women and children in orgies of savagery.
There is a different fiesta for each month (except May and
October) and February saw the turn of the gentle little donkey. We
understand there are no tears in heaven, but if there are they must
surely be on the cheeks of St. Francis.
