Customs and Border Protection irony for my “Shadow”: Lest we forget.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The statue of Saint Michael was sent in by […] years ago. Already at that time he was one of the main trainers for agents up in Northeast Virginia, Maryland and D.C.

I am NOT CBP. The official hat came my way just the other day from a lad who just passed all exams and is now on his first assignment for CBP. I told him that it would remind me to pray the Saint Michael prayer for him. He liked that, a lot.

The humor and irony of this is about as biting as it can get. Just ask my “Shadow” who, instead, is like an archetype for “Lord of War.” That might be understood by some longtime readers of this blog.

Having gotten over the humor and irony, however, I am sobered by the uncountable deaths of those Fast and Furious has aided in bringing about, and by the death of Brian Terry. Lest we forget.

    I pray the “lad who just passed all exams and is now on his first assignment for CBP” stays safe.

    The hat looks good on you Father. At first glance I thought it had something to do with your chaplaincy for the police as it goes well with what you are wearing.

    What a terrific statue of St Michael! We do so need his help.
