Pope Francis Advocates for Compassion for Animals

Pope Francis seems to be a revolutionary in the Catholic Church. In his June 18 Encyclical he officially declared that animals will join humans in heaven, and that animals and humans suffer alike. In fact, Pope Francis links animals to the Trinity and declares that the Mother of God "grieves for the sufferings of the crucified poor and for creatures of this world laid waste by human power."

Indeed, Pope Francis Pope are a game changer! Please visit All dogs, and cats, and pigs, and goats, and cockroaches go to heaven: So says Pope Francis.

The fact that animals and humans suffer alike, which can be proven scientifically, should be enough to lead us to stop eating Godís creatures. Compassion is the fruit of the Spirit.
