The Cat in Catholic



This is an image from the most wonderful and ancient Book of Kells, which is probably about a thousand years old. It appears to show a mouse gnawing on a communion wafer. Hence the importance of church cats.

Maybe that is what it is all about eating that which is good for you (the mouse) which is eating something in my mind not good for you (communion with religion, or a "higher" spiritual authority rather than the ever elusive Self).

That is awesome! Love the "disapproving" expression on the cats' face.
