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….).
