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 the 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 overflowing love, goodness, and beauty who is ready to give over everything to those he loves. Surely the Creator would no
t suddenly stop loving and caring for the creatures he had put into existence with so much care!” —Friar Jack
