These, ladies and gentlemen, are men.

Nigerian solidiers, fighting the Islamic beasts of Boko Haram, adore the Blessed Sacrament in Zambiza forest.

They seem to know you have to kneel before the Blessed Sacrament. They even found a thurible.

There’s more reverence in the African bush than in most cathedrals of the West.

As the “summit” opens in Rome.

    God bless those men. May they be victorious in battle, and may their shot groups be tight.

    “And they rose early in the morning, and went out through the desert of Thecua: and as they were marching, Josaphat standing in the midst of them, said: Hear me, ye men of Juda, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be secure: believe his prophets, and all things shall succeed well.

    “And he gave counsel to the people, and appointed the singing men of the Lord, to praise him by their companies, and to go before the army, and with one voice to say: Give glory to the Lord, for his mercy endureth for ever.”

    -2 Chronicles 20

    Psalm 20 is an excellent prayer for victory.
