More from the Lord’s innocent children…

Ravens can talk!

The news is so dark today that I need something light hearted. Here’s a wonderful creature who is very smart. Thank God for animals.

Peace and Smiles

  2. St. Bonaventure rightly called animals “creatures without sin”. Indeed, animals did not rebel against the Creator and are unmarked by the Original Sin.

    • I believe it is true that animals are without Original Sin, but I believe that an animal can be oppressed or possessed by a demon.

      Example: while Francis of Assisi was alive, there was this city of Gubbio in Italy. There was a wolf that lived in the woods outside of Gubbio. The wolf may have killed some farm animals and/or some people, so the people of Gubbio lived in fear of the wolf.

      One day, Francis met the wolf in the woods and rebuked it and told the wolf never to bother the people of Gubbio again. Right away the wolf became very docile and submissive to Francis. The wolf lived the rest of its days as the beloved pet of Gubbio.

  6. Ravens/crows are considered the most intelligent of all birds. I heard a story of this crow up in Canada during the winter. It was getting bitterly cold, so this crow flew up on top of this street light during the day, the crow spread its wings over the light, the light turned on and then the crow had some heat.

    Another story. These two crows observed the daily routine of this man and his dog. Every day before the man went to work, he put dog food in the bowl for the dog to eat. This one day, after the man put the dog food in the bowl, one crow flew down just out of reach of the dogs leash and made a lot of noise. The dog ran after the crow and barked and barked at the end of its leash. The other crow flew down, ate half of the dog food and then flew over and took the place of the other crow. The other crow flew over to the bowl and ate the rest of the dog food. Breakfast for two at someone else’s expense.

  8. “Some say a crow saved Saint Benedict of Nursia, said to be the father of the European monastic tradition. Benedict and the crow had formed a kind of relationship. Each night, the crow would arrive at dinnertime, like clockwork, and Benedict would feed it bread. One night, Benedict’s bread had been poisoned. Some say the crow snatched the piece of poisoned bread of its own volition, somehow able to detect the poison, and flew far away to discard it, later returning for his usual piece of bread. Others say Benedict grew wise to the plot and told the crow to take the poisoned bread far away. Benedict lived and his religious traditions survived, with the crow to thank.”

  10. The Prophet Elijah was fed by ravens

    I Kings 17: 1-6: “And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.”
