Peace on Earth?

"And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them." Isaiah 11:6.

One might think that this is just a dream or something which we hope to strive towards. However, I was pleasantly surprised to catch a glimspe of this while going up "Mount Carmel" to celebrate Mass at the Carmelite Sisters Monastery. Dogs and cats can sometimes be at peace after all :-)
