Beloved brother in priesthood, successor of the apostle Petrus, Pope Benedikt XVI
Your holy eminence, I refer to you with a very short letter;
Maybe an unusual short one. Nothing with enormous demands, petitions, campaign…
Just a personal, formless letter from a colleague, a catholic priest, catholic pastor, nothing more or less.
I have a modest request to you.
I ask you for a personal conversation.
I do so because of most intensive worry of a catholic priest, a pastoral caregiver. It is the intensive care for our “small brothers and sisters”, the animals, which god committed to us and the duty of Jesus, which we should try to achieve.
A situation that cries out to the heaven, silent screams of millions of suffering creatures, which are God’s creatures. These are our small brothers and sisters, arising from the same hand of God like us and which were signed in this loving hand.
We shall not turn away or remain silent about this. The time has come to point the way, to express about the agony of the expelled, hunted, domineered and abused creatures and to take loving care of them. We owe Jesus Christ and the Gospel this duty, the good news, for which he gave his life.
We know that the whole Creation sighs and is afraid with us until this moment…and it wishfully waits for revelation of God’s sons.
We shall not abandon our small, suffering, lonely and abused brothers and sisters (which are also brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ). This would be a betrayal of Jesus Christ and also the Gospel itself, as well as a betrayal of the depressed fellow creatures.
I would like to talk with you about this topic because of most intensive pastoral and catholic care.
In the huge hope to receive an invitation for a soon and personal conversation with you and with all good wishes for you and your associated persons and animals,
Tomasz jaeschke, Animalpastor
