Courage hits home…

image

This photo which was taken in the early 1960’s (I believe) shows a priest holding up a soldier that had just been shot in the midst of a Venezuelan battle. 

When I was about 14 or 15 I had a poster sized version of this picture on my wall.  It always evoked so much emotion- I used to stare at it and imagine what it must have been like with all the bullets flying through the air, the yelling, the screams, the explosions…

And in the midst of it all… godly courage.

Amen.
