God and Animal Suffering | Fr. Gregory Pine & Fr. Bonaventure Chapman

Godsplaining DOES indorse holding animals. This week’s episode of Godsplaining is all about animals. Fr. Gregory and Fr. Bonaventure discuss moral and natural evil, animal rights, animal pain, and more. Why does God allow animal suffering? Are animals equal to us? Do they have rights? Did God create animals for us?

Godsplaining is a Catholic podcast hosted by five Dominican friars of the Province of St. Joseph. In each episode, we help you to deepen your faith, pray with confidence, and tackle today’s difficult issues. Taking ideas from the Church’s Scriptures and tradition, we bring them to bear on life’s most urgent questions. So tune in, as we converse to convert.

The friars of Godsplaining are Catholic priests in the Order of Preachers, better known as the Dominicans, a religious order founded in 1216 by St. Dominic to preach the truth of the Gospel for the salvation of souls. 

For over 800 years, the Dominican friars have sought to form hearts and minds through their preaching and their witness to Christ. On Godsplaining, the friars share the fruits of their prayer and study as contemplative preachers in a contemporary age.
