From Hallowed Ground

Shasta (1996-2003): See you on the other side

By Monk Damascene (Christensen)
Another reason to love them:

'In our rustic atmosphere', Fr Herman observes, 'animals have a place. In the contemporary worldly atmosphere, on the other hand, they are as if robbed of their power, being at odds with the man-made world. When you look into the eyes of animals, you see that they are not just cute, furry playthings, but are an exceedingly serious phenomenon, creatures which take life in earnest. Animals bring in their own world, and they almost say to us: Enter into God's world. You belong to eternity.'
