A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


A Little Bit of Heaven? – 3 March 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

Yesterday afternoon, Frank and I had a great time at Veggie Heaven, a vegan restaurant in Teaneck, New Jersey, where we attended a Lenten fundraiser hosted by God’s Creatures Ministry.

Jan Fredericks, founder of God's Creatures Ministry, Deacon Joe Dwyer, and Frank shared words of encouragement with many others who share our desire to peacefully promote positive change for all of God’s creatures – humans and nonhumans.

Greeting old friends and meeting new ones, while enjoying delicious vegan food, was –well – heavenly!

Jan Fredericks, M.A., L.P.C. is the founder of God's Creatures Ministry, Chair of Catholic Concerns for Animals in the U.S., a Christian Educator and licensed counselor.
