Celebrate the Mystery, Compassion, Wonder and Beauty of Animals
Take a spiritual journey through this beautiful collection of blessings, prayers and meditations about the creatures, wild and tame, that inhabit our world. These moving contributions about all types of animals―playful dogs and beloved cats, giant whales and powerful elephants, tiny insects and delicate birds―are drawn from many faith traditions, including Native American, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist.
A special section also provides animal blessing ceremonies you can use to memorialize the loss of a companion animal, offer prayers for an animal suffering illness or injury or simply recognize the spiritual connection we create when we fully appreciate another member of God's creation.
