+ Eternal Rest Unto Norman Schwarzkopf + + +

"Stormin Norman" was the affectionate name given to this respected  U.S. military General.

And Infant of Prague statue of Jesus that was dressed in glistening garb, adorned his bedside table in his tent, reports indicate.

A tough leader, Norm Schwarzkopf died in Tampa, Florida, recently.

I remember Father Richard Rohr, OFM, Cap., telling us on retreat about the image of Jesus near his bed while in war's theatre.

Such a simple, prayerful, powerful presence and reminder of God.
