Happy Veterans Day

A priest gives communion to an American soldier on the beach of Vierville-sur-Mer after D-Day 1944
Thank you to all of you who have served and serve us still.  God grant us the gratitude we owe to the men who's bloody offering make our comfortable lives possible.  Let us especially pray for the holy souls of soldiers in purgatory.

  1. You're welcome.

    Note the choir organ on the left. Something odd about seeing that on the beachhead. Brings to mind an image of a chaplain's assistant lugging it on his back over hill and dale (ala Monty Python--Holy Grail). Yet, there is something comforting in that even in the midst of war, the Church had not yet resorted to guitar masses.
