For additional information on the book, go to www.prayersforanimals.org. We love our pets. We care for them by feeding them and taking them to the veterinarian. But do we ever pray for them? Because we've never been given the words to express what's in our hearts, these animals that reflect the Divine are too often excluded from our prayer life. We've been taught to pray for those we love, those in need, those who are alone, and all those less fortunate than us, but seldom do we find texts that teach us to pray for the animals around us. In Preces pro Animalibus, Lori Marra gives us the words that so often fail us when we are confronted with an animal that requires and deserves our prayers. This collection of simple, sincere prayers, poems, and stories will guide you and inspire you to pray for animals in crisis, for new pet arrivals, for working animals, for pet owners, for nature, and for animals that have passed on.

This compendium of stories, prayers, ceremonies, and engaging tidbits is a blessing not only for the animals of the world, but for all animal lovers, too. It welcomes all creeds, all breeds, and covers everything from amusing contemporary phenomena--with such chapters as "Rites of Paw-sage: Muzzle Tov,” about "bark” and other mitzvahs--to more serious issues of pet illness, loss, and burial. There are blessings for the furry, feathered, scaled, and finned; prayers for a new pet; fascinating background on the historical roots of critter celebrations (plus information on where to find some of the most popular ones today); tales of muttrimony and other pet nuptials; and advice on hosting a purr-fect party or participating in a pet pageant.

Christians believe that the logos is the source of all life, yet Christian worship remains unashamedly human-centric. The world of creation, and animals in particular, is almost invisible in our worship. The churches do not have the liturgical means of celebrating the life of animals, giving thanks for their companionship, praying for the relief of their suffering, or marking their death. This unique book provides a variety of liturgies that are animal-friendly and animal-inclusive. They include services in celebration of animal companionship, services for animal welfare, healing liturgies, new eucharistic prayers "for the whole creation," and animal burial services. Underlying all these new forms is a serious theological purpose: to help us to draw deeper into the mystery of God's work in creation and to affirm other sentient beings as co-creatures with us.

At least 65% of all American homes include pets, and many owners have begun to recognize the divine nature of all "creatures great and small.” This unique collection of blessings specifically addresses the spiritual needs of those modern-day pet owners . Besides offering original prayers and adaptations of classics, it explains how to lead rituals and celebrations, and provides advice on involving pets in spiritual events, including those conducted by the clergy. Although the work honors many faiths, it is non-denominational and non-religious, and encompasses elements from many cultures and traditions. There are healing prayers for ailing animals, ceremonies for special occasions (such as the arrival of a new pet), and blessings for a long and happy life with your animal companion.

Animal Prayers

" And this is how the world is, but-as the poems suggest so passionately-things don't have to be this way. Helms' poems read as extensions on the rhythms of life, moving from the world that is to the world as we feel it.

"Open your eyes, see what you can with them," Helms encourages. When we do, we witness our own humanity's devastating impact on the natural world. The poet calls the Anthropocene to account-our polluting, our hunting, our meddling destruction of habitat-but in language so rich and tender that even as we are guilt-ridden, we are mysteriously joyful. Helms reminds us that to be human is to wreck, but also to nurture and to craft. Elephants, orcas, beetles, gulls, and even our beloved pets all come into sharper focus through the poet's attentive eye. Devon Balwit Mary Oliver writes that the broken heart should "break open and never close again." Helms knows this in his bones, but, like Oliver's best, his poems keep the head intact as well. Of the animals that grace Helms' heart, few are survivors, but it is not the reader's regret that the poems invite, it is the reader's mind, engaged with the understanding that what is lost in these deaths is not merely a fellow creature, but a fellow intelligence, a core of transformative understanding and empathy. Richard Fenton Sederstrom The French have a phrase, cri de coeur , a passionate appeal to the heart. These poems attempt a cri d'ame , a reaching out to the soul; speaking to the lifeblood, they are a paean and an elegy to the animal in us all, the soul-filled. With the beings in these poems, we are made to understand that we are the animals of this earth together, and this has consequences: "we are mice, and the night fills with owls." And this is how the world is, but-as the poems suggest so passionately-things don't have to be this way. Helms' poems read as extensions on the rhythms of life, moving from the world that is to the world as we feel it. We are faced with having made this world. What is triangulated clearly from this is the passion of how things could, and so very much ought, otherwise to be. Alberto Rios
