Friday night was the first night of Chanukah. We have a Soldier in my unit who's trying to be an observant Jew, which has been tough thus far back during this deployment, as we don't have a Rabbi nearby.
My Soldier really wanted to celebrate Chanukah, so I sent the request 'up the chain' to see whether we could get a Rabbi here.
So I found a menorah, looked up the prayers using The Google, and had the Soldier come to the office Friday night so we could light the menorah together. Much to my surprise, though he was Bar Mitzvah, he can't read Hebrew, so I did the best I could (it's been years since I have done this).
May light shine in your darkness during this season, and throughout the year.
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
