Catholic Quotes on Animals

  1. “It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer and die needlessly.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 2418

  2. “Animals are God’s creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God’s sight…Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God’s absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering.” – Reverend Andrew Linzey
