Girl and Lamb

Why should we love animals?

Because they give everything, asking for nothing back…

Because they are defenseless amid men’s weapons and power…

Because they are eternal children…they don’t know hate or war…they don’t know about money and only seek the protection of shelter…

Because they explain themselves without words, because their eyes are as pure as their souls…

Because they don’t know about envy or grudges and forgiveness comes natural to them…

Because they love with loyalty and truthfulness…

Because they recognize and appreciate respect…

Because they don’t buy love, they just expect it…

Because they are our companions and eternal friends that never betray…

And because they are alive…because of this and a thousand other reasons they deserve our love!

If we learn to love them like they deserve, for being creatures that feel, suffer, and need us, we will be closer to God.

~Mother Teresa
