We wish this week a blessed Veterans Day to all who have served our nation in its Armed Forces. It’s been a hundred years since the end of the “War to End All Wars” … on that 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918; too bad that title did not prove true.

So many things for which to give thanks—the service of others, peaceful elections, and so much more.

It was there in 2001 that he personally observed the appalling and filthy conditions of a major hospital.

Now you may have seen on the signboard in front of the Catholic church last week a notice about the celebration of All Saints Day, and perchance mused, “Now what are those crazy Catholics up to now?” The misinformed may have thought (with an eye-roll): “There they go … worshipping saints again.”

Au contraire, my good reader!
