Jaspar's Angel

E-mail Print PDF

Although I am not religious myself, Jaspar's Angel is a story which characterises the animals to be found in the New Testament. The story weaves their experiences into a colourful, humourous and compassionate tale.

Who would consider that the water turned into wine at the Wedding Feast at Cana could possibly have also flowed from the taps and pumps in the kitchens and yard as well as the rest of the house? An event in the story which gives rise to a predicament that must surely make even the most 'sober' person laugh? and again who would ever envisage a Cockerel who was ' Chief of the Yard' in the Household of the High priest (whom I have named Hapacais ) turning water into wine himself with some unfortunate but amusing results?

 

Although I have used events and characters in the New Testament to support the story, the central character is a dog called Jaspar who 'dies' and wakes up to an exciting and extraordinary adventure. His meeting with the other animal characters allowed me to describe his evoluion from a bewildered Soul, who wakes up without his earthly body, to one who takes command on a totally selfless mission.

On route, He suffers temptations to turn his back on ' progress' and return to Earth.

One by one, each animal,Penny the sheep,Dorcas the donkey, Claudius the cockerel, Jaspar and Tabitha the cat , in the care of Fedor the Angel Dog, enter a full Consciousness of themselves as Spirit with powers they never dreamt they possessed .

On their journey to the Summerlands, each animal reveals their true character and how it shapes their final destiny.

I make no apology for using the New Testament as an opportunity to acknowledge the Soul in Animals ....A fact we need to think and feel more about in this world of animal testing, euthanasia of thousands of unwanted dogs each day ...need I go on????  Please enjoy this story that reveals the Beauty in our Animal friends. xx
