God decided to send animals to save these holy men and women.

In the lives of the saints, there are often many miracles that occur through the divine intervention of God. On certain occasions, these miracles are completed through the cooperation of animals, who are part of God’s creation and can be made into instruments of his divine plan.

These miraculous events give us a little glimpse into what life was like in the beginning of this world, when humans and animals lived together in harmony.

Here are five such saints who experienced that grace and helped through the actions of animals.
