Veterans Day (US) today.

This painting is from my friend Britt Collins:

Yesterday during Mass, an unstable man rushed the altar during EWTN's live TV broadcast. Reportedly shouting about the "traditional Mass" and "conciliar abomination". There are valid issues on these topics, but disrupting Holy Mass is obviously not the time for one in control of themselves.

(Mk 10:52):
Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.

17 years ago today, Muslim extremists killed 3,000 souls in NYC. First among them was Fr. Mychal Judge.

They were all amazed and said to one another, “What is there about his word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.”
