By Friar Jack Wintz, OFM
For anyone who is grieving the loss of beloved pets, this bestselling little book offers wisdom, comfort, and the reassuring hope that we will see our cats and dogs and other animals in heaven.
Friar Jack Wintz has been pondering this for years, and he is convinced that God's loving relationship with creation includes the afterlife. Here, Friar Jack traces the history of God's fatherly care for his creatures—from thr Garden of Eden, to Noah and the Ark, Jonah and the Whale, and the life and example of St. Francis of Assisi—and also shares from his personal life experience.
"Our God is a God of overflowinglove, goodness, and beauty who is ready to give over everything to those he loves. Surely the Creator would not suddenly stop loving and caring for the creatures he had put into existence with so much care!" —Friar Jack

Saint Corona, who lived in 2nd century Syria, was only 15 when she professed her Christian Faith and was martyred under the rule of Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius.
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus‚Äô pain, with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father‚Äôs will and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas ‚Äì we who are put to the test ‚Äì and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
According to Catholic tradition, St. Roch was miraculously born with a red cross on his breast. He grew up to be a man of great faith.
After his parents died, Saint Roch gave away his inheritence to the poor. In the year 1315, he began miraculously curing plague victims in Italy with the sign of the cross, but his ministry led to him contracting the disease himself. He later recovered but spent the remainder of his life in prison after being mistaken for a spy.
After St. Roch died in prison, an angel appeared in his cell and said that those who invoked Roch's intercession would be cured. Today, St. Roch is called upon to intercede against illness, including the coronavirus pandemic.
On the back of our exclusive St. Roch holy card is the beloved Prayer to St. Roch (see below), which we invite you to use to ask for Roch's intercession. These holy cards were designed in-house by the Apostle Gear graphic arts team.
Printed in full high-gloss color, the card is about the size of a business card (3.5-inches high by 2-inches wide) and fits perfectly in a wallet or pocket. We invite you to purchase this 100 pack and distribute them to everyone who might join you in prayer.
Prayer to St. Roch
O Blessed Saint Roch, Patron of the Sick, have pity on those who lie upon a bed of suffering.
Your power was so great when you were in this world, that by the sign of the Cross, many were healed of their diseases.
Now that you are in heaven, your power is not less.
Offer, then, to God our sighs and tears and obtain for us that health we seek.
hrough Christ our Lord. Amen.
Repeat the following 3 times: Saint Roch, pray for us, that we may be preserved from all diseases of body and soul.
Thirty of our most popular Prayer Cards, made exclusively by Apostle Gear, are featured in this unique set. The set comes in an attractive Apostle Gear gift box.
