Patrick Kenny, To Raise the Fallen

To Raise the Fallen: A Selection of the War Letters, Prayers, and Spiritual Writings of Fr. Willie Doyle, S.J.,  is the story of a young Irish military chaplain in World War I, told through his impressions on and off the battlefield.  As Dr. Patrick Kenny tells Doug in this EWTN Bookmark interview, Fr. Willie Doyle also writes of his mission in life, his desire to make reparations for the sins of priests, and his ongoing abandonment into the hands of the Lord, for Whom he wishes to become a martyr. To Raise the Fallen is a simple, powerful testament to the far-reaching influence one soul can have, on his comrades-in-arms, and on those who would read his words then, and now.
