Why don't we all focus on the beauty and poignancy of this picture of men at war, some of which probably died, making do with what they have in order to assist at mass.
In their rough and hazardous conditions, they made time to serve our God.
That's what's important.
Although of course what is also beautiful is this snapshot of a traditional mass served ad orientem even with a handful of attendees
Yes, a very poigniant moment! There is also some video footage around of soldiers in the Pacific lining up for confessions outdoors in the jungle. I'll tell you, there was a llong line of men awaiting this sacrament. The priest really had his hands full that particular day. This was a very touching piece of video to see. My heart went to them all.
