The US Bishops are meeting in their annual plenary session. Yesterday, Most Rev. Timothy Broglio, Archbishop for the Military Services, delivered a presentation on the dire state of the number of chaplains serving the military and their families.
His presentation is dire. He doesn’t pull punches. Broglio starts about 34:00. On demand page HERE: 2015-11-16 Afternoon Session
(Apparently either the blog doesn’t like that code or that code doesn’t like this blog. Interesting. I wonder if this can be embedded by anyone else.)
He calls on all the bishops to be more open to the service of their priests as military chaplains.
You readers who are not diocesan bishops can’t send men to serve, but you can support the work of military chaplains by sending a donation.
