Not to Hurt

Not to Hurt
by St. Francis of Assisi

Not to hurt our humble brethren (the animals)
Is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough.
We have a higher mission:
To be of service to them whenever they require it.

  1. I know grown-ass men who kill dogs just for fun. The world is full of idiots without regard to age, education, gender, or race.

  2. I think intelligent, sentient life is the uppermost expression of God in the material world. For one sentient life to terminate the life of another sentient being is the worst thing that can happen although I will suspend that belief if someone hurts any of my cats.
