Nice posts at Hot Air and at Deacon Greg’s place and elsewhere, but I like this piece by Frank Weathers, because it reminds us that (as with this priest) soldiers and saints are sometimes one and the same:
Martin of Tours by Charles L. O’Donnell
“As I today was wayfaring”—
Holy, Holy, Holy!—low—
Said Christ in heaven’s evening—
The Holies yet more hushed and slow—
“I met a knight upon the road;
A plumed charger he bestrode.
“He saw the beggar that was I—
Holy, Holy, Holy I—long—
Head and foot one beggary—
Holy, Holy, Holy!—song—
One that shivered in the cold
While his horse trailed cloth of gold.
And let’s have a look at some heroic military chaplains.
