We remember! From only several days ago.
That Chinese Phase One of the Korean war and the obliteration of the American 8th Cavalry remembered by a special Catholic ritual!
"Traditional Latin Mass offered at Ft. Hood"
"KILLEEN, Texas - - An All Souls Day Traditional Latin Mass was celebrated Wednesday on the Fort Hood Military base."
"The Mass was offered on the hood of a military humvee, the traditional way Mass is offered during time of battle."
"With some 60 people in attendance, the Mass was especially offered up for the fallen 1st Cavalry Division soldiers who died in the Battle of Unsanin during the Korean War on November 2, 1950. The Mass was held on the grounds of the 1st Cavalry Division Museum"
THERE BEING NO VIOLATION OF CHRISTIAN PRECEPTS, THE SOLDIER AT THE PROFESSION OF ARMS!
Those apostles of JESUS not only carrying swords but encouraged to do so:
Luke 22:36 "Then said he [JESUS] unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take [it], and likewise [his] scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one."
"'But now': When Christ sent them out before, He had sovereignly arranged for their needs to be met. Henceforth they were to use normal means to provide for their own support and protection. The money bag, knapsack and sword were figurative expressions for such means (the sword being emblematic of protection, not aggression)."
Prepared for self-defense a virtue, not a fault.
