A rescue story in urban New Jersey

God's object lesson (before the homily) on The Relationship Between Worship and The Treatment of Animals.

I was never in this large urban Church before and was waiting for Mass (Church) to begin.  As I was kneeling praying/waiting, I noticed a bird hopping across the front of the altar.  Mass was going to begin at any second/minute.  

How could I worship God knowing that right in front of us was one of His creatures in distress?  I got out of my pew and went up to the altar. I don't know if I followed the bird or the bird followed me into the sacristy where I asked if someone could open a window for this bird.  The response was negative.  

I decided to pull the rope and open a window high near the ceiling into a horizontal platform.  Immediately the bird flew up on it, chirped and was met by another bird. After greeting each other, they both flew away and I was ready to worship the God who created them and Whose eye was on this little bird all along.

I'm reminded of Psalm 150:6 "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Alleluia."

Jesus really came to set the captives free -- through us.


 

Your Comments are Welcome

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
