Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.

“All you beasts, wild and tame, bless the Lord;monk and cats
praise and exalt him above all forever.
All you mortals, bless the Lord;
praise and exalt him above all forever.” (from Daniel 3.57-88)

Abba Moses replied: ‘…In another way, however, it is possible to look upon God, for the manner of contemplating God may be conceived  and understood in many ways. God is not only to be known in His blessed and incomprehensible being, for this is something which is reserved for His saints in the age to come. He is also to be known from the grandeur and beauty of His creatures, from His providence which governs the world day by day, from His righteousness and from the wonders which He shows to His saints in each generation. When we reflect on the measurelessness of His power and His unsleeping eye which looks upon the hidden things of the heart and which nothing can escape, we are filled with the deepest awe, marveling at Him and adoring Him. When we consider that He numbers the raindrops, the sand of the sea and the stars of heaven, we are amazed at the grandeur of His nature and His wisdom.’ Source

And Mary said: ‘My soul exalts the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.'”

Let us join in chorus with the Theotokos… (I wonder if she had a cat?! I mean after all is the Magnificat!)

“This is the day the Lord has made, let us join ALL the rest of creation and rejoice and be glad in it.”
