It needs educators capable of developing an ethics of ecology, and helping people, through effective pedagogy, to grow in solidarity, responsibility and compassionate care” – LS 210.

Amazing Friendships between Animals and Saints

Author: Greg Kennedy S.J

Illustrations by: Kerry Lyn Wilso

Children will be delighted by this beautifully illustrated book about friendships that holy women and men have made with animals.

While Christians know of St. Francis and his amicable interaction with birds, wolves and other animals, few have heard the many other touching accounts of friendships between canonized women and men and other creatures. Today, given the Catholic Church’s insistence that the ecological crisis is essentially a spiritual one, the moral of these often-ancient stories offer us guidance, hope and instruction.
