Thoughts on Easter and the Earth

Hi, guys!

Hope you had a good Easter. It is, paws down, the busiest church and rectory time ever. There's family, there are strangers although mostly relatives visiting regular parishioners and a few curiosity seekers. I have no idea what they might want. Maybe to be converted? Wait a minute..they're CAT LOVERS, of course, coming just to see me!!!!!

Anyway, the Lord has risen in all of His glory and I would have loved to have been a cat at his side when he first woke up!





Today is Earth Day and a great followup to yesterday's thoughts and prayers and I'm celebrating by taking a walk around, something I haven't had a chance to do. I'll be checking to make sure all the flowers are all right and the housekeeper hasn't killed anything yet.

Here's a thought: Earth Day is really special to us because we're so much a part of it, more than humans. I'll explain. We're part of it because we haven't done anything to change it, destroy it, or jeopardize its existence. I know - highfalutin' thoughts for a feline, but I truly believe this.


So, enjoy the day, my friends and the week ahead, remembering there are those who love the earth and respect it as much as we do.

Hi Tom! We hope you had a lovely Easter. I would love to take a walk around outside, but the Mom says it is too dangerous here in the city. She hopes to get a pet carriage someday so she can take me out safely so I can enjoy the world :)

Tom, you're so right. Us cats haven't done anything to hurt our earth, unlike the humans. Happy Earth Day!

Good thoughts today Tom - enjoy your after Easter rest, sounds like you need some good napping after the busyness.

We agree. We all must look after our planet and we can start by looking after our own small space.
Hope you enjoyed all your visitors too :)

As much as it's terrific that bazillionairs have pledged money to rebuild Notre Dame in Paris, I wish they'd give their money to the folks who are trying to clean up the plastic in the oceans, and to help The Great Barrier Reef that is endangered!

We're very fond of our planet too! Hope your Easter was purrfect.

You're so wise, Tom. And right!

You know what today is also? With your mom's name you should. It's Irish Independence Day. TW had lunch with Aunt Pauline and she told us that.

Our mom does her best to look after the planet. She's not purrfect, but every little bit helps.

I can see you curled asleep on the Lord's face as the Light of Resurrection fills the Tomb. Is it possible scientists found cat hairs on the Shroud of Turin ?

He is risen, Tom. And my mom has tried to do better and better to recycle and consume less goods.

Great message, Tom. We must all be good stewards of the world we've been gifted!
