Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
If you need the rank, you're not worth it.
If you're worth the rank you don't need it.
@Father FiniganThose experiencing job losses in the armed forces certainly deserve the prayers of high ranking priests such as our old friend Father Richard Moth, Bishop of the Forces.The TA's Major James Cleverly, the London Assembly Member for Bexley and Bromley has been absent from City Hall since before the riots. His last facebook post on Augus 7th reads...Tweets and blog posts will be light to non-existent over the next few weeks. I'm off on exercise with the Army supporting 19 Brigade.I think having Mr Cleverly in his office at City Hall, with full time soldiers supporting 19 Brigade would have been by far the best solution for the UK, and Bexley & Bromley too.Our Lady of the Rosary ( http://the-hermeneutic-of-continuity.blogspot.com/2011/05/visit-to-tomb-of-blessed-john-paul-ii.html ) pray for us!PAPA VERO ORA PRO NOBIS! God Save the Queen!
Easier to find images of US military ranks for those of Her Majesty's?I think it's a rather indirect way to announce promotion freezes.Over here, one of the ways they're looking to trim the fat off the federal budget is by reducing and restricting the qualifications for military pensions. Yes, our current government is an ungrateful lot.
Why American rank insignia?!
Yes, just the first one I found on google images. But the saying does come from a certain British regiment.
Is this really about the military...or about the hierarchy?Wasn't there something similar in clerical circles on the lines of: "If you yearn to become a bishop, you probably don't deserve to be one."My mother put it a little differently - and not just about clerical preferment: "Expect not and you shall not be disappointed."
Where does rank heresy fit in?
On a serious note (I meant to include this in my previous comment), there is an excellent post on Remembering Fr William Doyle SJ today about the Servant of God Fr Vincent Capodanno, a chaplain in the US Marine Corps who died 44 years on 4 September in the Vietnam War.
