Animals have long been a source of spiritual and emotional support for many people. Even in today’s world, where so much is artificial, there is something undeniably special about caring for an animal with love and respect. This is why it’s such a shame that the Catholic Church has opposed animal rights for so long. That’s right, their beliefs conflict directly with the compassionate attitude we should have towards our fellow creatures. That doesn’t mean, of course, that Catholics can’t pray for animals. They just need to do it in a way that upholds their religious beliefs while also advocating for animal rights. Here are some Catholic prayers for animals that will help you get started.

Please keep all of our animals safe from harm – both physical and emotional – and guide them towards a life of happiness and contentment. Protect them from diseases and predators, give them strength in times of difficulty, and bring peace and consolation to their hearts.
