His Holiness, Pope Francis, allegedly comforted a child whose pet had died, by assuring him he'd see his pet again. After some fact checking, maybe that's not what he said.
Pets in Heaven (or not) is an idea that causes divisiveness in communities worldwide. However, I have the answer. Pardon me for being so bold as to say it, but here is the definitive answer.
This post is for believers. Therefore, it is based on common assumptions.
Assumption One: Heaven is a happy place. Can we agree on this?
Assumption Two: God is omniscient. He knows me better than I know myself. He knows what it takes to make me happy.
Therefore, if seeing my beloved pets is what it takes to make me happy, they will be there. I leave it to His judgment to know what I will need and to provide it.
What decisions will you leave up to the Almighty today?
