Franciscan Jack Wintz wants you to know—the Bible gives us many clues that we will be with our pets in heaven for eternity!
“Our God is a God of overflowing love, goodness, and beauty who is ready to give over everything to those he loves. This goodness is reflected in the whole family of creation. When God says of any creature, whether human or nonhuman, that it is good or very good, it’s not simply a matter of moral goodness. The creature also has an inherent goodness and beauty—a beauty that reflects God, who is Beauty itself.”
About the Author
Friar Jack Wintz, OFM, was for many decades an editor at St. Anthony Messenger magazine in Cincinnati, where he interviewed luminaries such as St. Teresa of Calcutta and Gene Kelly. His inspiring books have sold more than a quarter of a million copies.
"The longtime friar also brings his deep devotion to the Franciscan charism and evidence from Scripture, Christian tradition and from the life of St. Francis of Assisi to the book, showing that there will be other creatures besides humans who will be enjoying life with God in heaven. The book features prayers and blessings for all companion animals and offers hope and inspiration to those who have just lost, or are soon to lose, a beloved pet." —The Catholic Telegraph
"Jack Wintz would agree that animals play a special role in our spiritual development. In his I Will See You in Heaven, Wintz, a Franciscan friar, looks to the Bible to show that God sees animals as beings uniquely positioned to care for and nurture us as we care for and nurture them." —Publishers Weekly
