Thank you, good Fr Z, for this most kind post.
Looks like a Roman chausable. Some styles never go out of style no matter where you are.
Brick by brick, boat by boat.
NB: should be fo’c’sle, not foc’sle.
We knew Fr. Cusick when he was aboard Camp Lejeune NC about ten years ago; he & a handful of other stalwart chaplains ensured we had an anchor of orthodox liturgy & sound doctrine at St. Francis Xavier chapel (despite the five-woman guitar & hand-clappin’ “Glory & Praise” group he christened “The Spice Girls”).
Liturgy: Great. Doctrine: Sound. Music…. Well…
Two outta three ain’t bad. He done what he could.
Hello Bos Mutissimus,

Uh . . . I thought that the tonsure was supposed to be on the crown of the head, not on the sides and back. :-)
Fr A, I think that’s a MILITARY tonsure….
Thank you for your presence. As a military member myself, the service you provide is invaluable. May God continue to bless you and His flock through your ministry.
I remember Fr.Charles/Lawrence Opraem well from my son’s days at St. Michael’s Prep in Orange County Ca. He is a very orthodox priest and the Military Archdiocese is very fortunate to have him. Father if you happen to read this. Greetings from the Gallaher family. JP is now in the Marines, stationed in Okinawa. If your travels include Okinawa please look him up. He is 3rd Recon Bat. As Florida Latin Rite said ” the service you provide is invaluable”. Keep up the good work. Joe Gallaher
The “Military Archdiocese” which comprises all priests serving our folks all over the world, gets zero funds from the Church, zero funds from the government. They are a sort of floating archdiocese dependent upon donations. This is stupid, IMHO, every diocese in the USA should just give a percentage of its Annual Appeal directly to the Military Archdiocese. But as that is not the case and most people don’t realize it, I mention if you want to do some extra alms giving for Lent or are looking for a worthy cause.
I agree with Joan 1,000%! It is a cause dear to my heart. God bless all the military chaplains (all priests too)! It was a Navy Chaplain who married us over 40 yrs. ago, and we knew many wonderful others over my husband’s career.
