LETTER IN ENGLISH:
                                             
His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

Your Holiness:

Your decision to bring back a mediaeval costum to wear A fur trimmed outfit has greatly appalled the animal protection community worldwide.  We are acting under the assumption that  you do not know that fur bearing animals suffer immensely during their captive lives before meeting with brutal deaths which include live skinning.  

We, respectfully invite you to watch the video below and read the report about fur farms in China which produces 85% of the world's fur.  Regardless of  wherever fur is produced, each fur article comes with unimaginable pain and agony inflicted upon fur bearing animals.   After learning about these atrocities committed against God's creatures, you will understand why the Catholic church worldwide should teach its followers to avoid contributing and/or promoting cruelty to all living beings.  This includes animals which are also God's creatures and must have their sanctity preserved.   The Love of God and Jesus Christ is extended to all living beings.  Please do not forget St. Francis of Assissi.

Please watch the video below and read the report, then decide for yourself whether such cruelty is in agreement with Jesus Christ's teachings of compassion.

LETTER IN ITALIAN:

Sua Santità Papa Benedetto XVI

Santità.
la Sua decisione di ripristinare la tradizione medioevale di indossare un abito adornato di pelliccia ha fortemente atterrito le associazioni per la protezione degli animali in tutto il mondo. Noi pensiamo che Lei non sappia che gli animali da pelliccia soffrono immensamente durante la loro prigionia, prima di andare incontro ad una morte atroce, che include l'essere scuoiati vivi.

La invitiamo rispettosamente a guardare il video sotto riportato e leggere il rapporto sugli allevamenti in Cina, dove viene prodotto l'85% delle pellicce del pianeta. Indipendentemente dal luogo di provenienza, ogni pelliccia viene prodotta infliggendo agli animali dolori inimmaginabili ed una lunga agonia.

Dopo aver conosciuto queste atrocità, commesse nei contronti di creature di Dio, capirà perché la Chiesa Cattolica mondiale dovrebbe insegnare ai propri fedeli ad evitare e a far evitare la crudeltà verso tutti gli esseri viventi. Ciò include gli animali, che devono essere protetti in quanto creature di Dio. L'amore di Dio e di Gesù Cristo è esteso a tutti gli esseri viventi. Non dimentichiamo San Francesco d'Assisi.
Per favore, guardi il filmato sotto riportato e poi decida Lei stesso se tali crudeltà siano compatibili con gli insegnamenti di Gesù Cristo.

De toda consideración,
Estamos sorprendidos luego de leer la desagradable noticia lanzada por algunas publicaciones online acerca de que usted actualizó la costumbre ya olvidada de los papas, de utilizar piel de armiño en su vestimenta:

¿Será que ignora que para confeccionar el gorro y otras prendas que a usted le agrada usar, antes hubieron de matar con los métodos mas crueles y perversos a esos pobres animalitos, quienes hasta tanto habrán malvivido en tristes jaulas o los habrán cazado provocándoles  inimaginables sufrimientos?.  Lo invitamos cordialmente a que vea el infierno creado tanto por quienes lucran con las pieles de inocentes criaturas como por quienes las usan:    


Luego de  informado no hay excusa para continuar traicionando el mensaje de amor que tanto proclama la Iglesia Católica, el amor no es crueldad, habiendo materiales sintéticos igual o mas abrigados que la piel verdadera no hay motivos para continuar con una tradición anticuada, antiética  y cruel.


Sinceramente,

His Holiness, the Pope, may not be aware that fur bearing animals  live miserable lives until they meet with brutal deaths, including being skinned alive for  fur.

His Holiness will surely agree that animals are God's creatures and deserve to be treated with compassion, the most sacred dogma of Christ's teachings.
