Readings for today’s Mass
God's various critters regularly remind me of the wonder of creation, especially for me, our dog companions. Last week our old terrier Buddy died after a sudden and unexpected illness. As my wife and I wept over his lifeless body, we both gave thanks for the gift of his life, his unbridled enthusiasm for treats, his unique prancing walk, those times when he would plant his head on our laps to be petted. "How lovely is your dwelling place" God our Creator.
If we prayed this line from today's psalm, we might care for the earth much more carefully and lovingly. The planet would be a cleaner, healthier place for all of us. "How lovely is your dwelling place" -- this place, these creatures, one another, God our Creator.
