Will I See My Dog In Heaven?
By Jack Wintz, OFM. I never fully understood the 'attachment' to dogs and cats until Pio (yes, he is named after my favorite saint, Padre Pio) became a member of our family seven years ago. Pio is a black and white Portuguese water dog with an affectionate, and, at times, mischievous spirit. I've often wondered the very same question the title of this book poses. And Friar Jack does a wonderful job answering that question. By using Scripture, Christian tradition and liturgy, as well as the life and teachings of St. Francis of Assisi, the good friar assures the reader that God's saving love includes the whole family of creation. Scattered throughout the book are comforting psalms, prayers, and blessings for our beloved pets. I read the last page of this book first, and I will tell you, it does have a 'happy ending'! Softcover, 149 pages.
