I know, two posts within hours of each other, lame, right?
But it's D-Day, and that deserved some note. Yeah, I know that a blog post is a dopey way to pay tribute to the men who died 70 years ago today, but a lot of people in these times don't remember or care about D-Day, WWII, or much of anything in our history. That's sad, but it's also a little scary because if you don't know history, you can't learn from it.
Our brave men fighting on Normandy Beach had a sense of identity and a duty towards their country, which isn't something you could say about most young people today. If we're going to continue being a strong country- a defender and upholder of what is right- we need to remember days of history like D-Day, and take back our senses of morality and love of country.
Well, those are just my thoughts, and I apologize if they were exceedingly dumb and/or heavy.
Take a look at this neat picture of an Army Priest saying Mass for soldiers on D-Day. Pretty cool, huh?


  1. May the Divine Assistance remain always with us, and may the souls of all the faithfully departed, rest in peace.

    Btw, it says 'Mess' where I think you meant to type 'Mass' :)

    1. Amen to that.
      (*sigh* I can't even try to honor our fallen troops without making some kind of goof. Thanks for telling me though, otherwise I wouldn't have noticed.)
      (('Mess' is what we call it when the Liturgy involves tambourines.))

  2. ("Mess" is also what soldiers and sailors call mealtime, so in a way, Mass is a kind of Mess, since it does involve eating and drinking.)

    Very nice post! I'm always so encouraged to see other people remembering important historical dates like D-Day.
