be kind to animals

Yesterday was the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi.

Not something people other than Catholics (and Anglicans) would know, or be expected to know.

St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment. I don't know too much about him myself, only what I've learned from the little research I did today.

But his policy of being kind to animals, even to  a wolf,  'the fierce wolf that had ravished' the flocks of the people of some part of Italy 'because through hunger "Brother Wolf" had done this wrong'

That's got to make you think. 

Ours is a stewardship of the earth. 

#shadeofgreen- be kind to animals. Let them have their space. And may the tigers you befriend come to your funeral!
in memory of Ming, Simba, Rachel, Mumu, Kiko and all other beloved animals
