Animals also go to heaven
If you have ever had to endure the loss of your beloved pet, you will certainly be very happy to know, you probably still destined to be reunited in the next life, because all animals go to heaven. So says Pope Francis.
Preaching to the crowd gathered in St. Peter’s square, the Pontiff quoted a passage from the gospel of Paul, in which there was evidence of the afterlife the animals. So Dad wanted to reassure the boy, who mourned the loss of his dog.
Showing compassion and care the Pope was able to reassure the mourner of the child.
He said, “One day we will again see our animals in Christ. A Paradise open to all creatures of God.”
This point of view is completely opposite to the views of his predecessor on eternal life for animals.
Pope Benedict XVI believed that after death, animals can’t go to heaven, since none of the Gospels there is no mention of this. And the presence of animals at the time of the Nativity, he called a myth. But we all know that Jesus Christ was born in a stable for animals where sheep were present, and after the birth he was laid in the manger – the place where he kept food for the animals. Thus, the statement of Pope Benedict XVI contrary to the Bible.
Earlier, Pope Francis received as a gift from the Italian Catholic Church, two donkeys, Thea and Noah. These donkeys give milk for feeding children who are allergic to milk other animals.
Pierluigi Christophe Arones, who helped to carry the animals, said that the former Pope Benedict in childhood always drank donkey milk.
He added: “Pope Francis said that when he was little, his mother gave him donkey milk, if he could not get another. He continued to drink it and when I grew up”.
Thus, we can say that the statement of the Pope that all animals go to heaven, was influenced by his childhood memories.
