Eternal Father, Strong to Save

"... forever, Amen. Hit the dirt."

Today is the Feast Day of St. John Compostela, the patron saint of military chaplains. I’m very fond of chaplains. They have always seemed to me both more open-minded and more worldly-wise than the civilian clergy. I’ve only ever met one that I wanted to smack, and twenty five years ago last month, the spousal unit and I were spliced by one of them (who must have been doing something right since we’re still together….).
