"A spiritual theme for people of all faiths and none. Thought provoking articles. Below is an extraction from their purpose page.
The deep-seated cause of animal suffering.
Worldwide animal cruelty and exploitation are symptoms of a deeply embedded, speciesist world-view that maintains that certain human beings have the right to commodify, exploit, enslave, and kill whomever they deem ‘less than human.’ Let us address the cause of animal suffering holistically:
•Both physically through non-violent action, and
•Metaphysically by spiritually encircling the world with compassion for all life. We must not underestimate how powerful our thoughts and prayers can be.
PCA honors the prayer traditions of all religions and encourages participants to use any form of prayer, meditation, or focused thought that is comfortable. In fact, Circle members who have no particular spiritual beliefs but who believe in the proven power of focused thought are absolutely welcome. There are no requirements to joining the Prayer Circle for Animals other than an interest in helping animals through prayer or focused thought and a willingness to commit to faithfully repeating at least once daily this Prayer for the Animals in a heartfelt mood of thanksgiving for the ongoing manifestation of love and peace on earth."
