Padre’s Rambling: A Haibun

padrerambling

Though he was a “low churchman,” and preferred “brother” to any other title, the men of the battalion still tended to address him as Padre.  In time he came to recognise it as a term of endearment and respect, and as such he accepted it and then gradually adopted it.  Padre would wander among the troops telling stories, answering questions, and yes – giving spiritual guidance.  Though the uniforms may now be gone, the ramblings and mission still remain.

Padre – the chaplain

Observant through life rambles

Enlightening flock
