I’m having a short day today.  I think there’s important points in the main part of the sermon about keeping some joy about us even in the midst of all the chaos and darkness, but what I really like about the sermon is the last 5 minutes on Servant of God Fr. Vincent Capodanno, USMC, MoH.  Good stuff.  Hope you have a good day, off to the doctor to see how our baby is doing.  Thank you so much for your prayers, thus far, all is very well.

Got to visit the Happy Cappy, the USS Capodanno back in 1982 in Newport, RI where it was then homeported. The ship’s company was well aware of Fr. Capodanno’s service and death and proud of their ship’s namesake. But remember that Fr. Capodanno was not USMC but actually USN even though he was assigned to the Jarheads; he had gone to the side of the unit’s Navy corpsman when was killed after having already been wounded seriously. Interesting too was the fact that Father Vincent was a Maryknoll priest- an order one would not associate with any chaplain corps nowadays.

Just now watched the video. Good stuff, BUT it is risible that the homilist thrice, at least, talked about Father Capodanno and his “soldiers”. Them’s fightin’ words to every Marine- never call a Marine a doggie!

Oh, very true. That’s getting downright offensive.
