","text":"Over the last few years I have read several books about Catholic Military Chaplains. It started with a recommendation of one book by a friend and has grown into a personal obsession. For two main reasons, first I find many if the stories inspirational, challenging, and encouraging. Second my son who is 10 has been saying for a few years that he will be a priest, and for the last year that he will be a military chaplain. This book was an amazing read, even as a Canadian reading the story s and histories about American Military chaplains was very moving. As can bee seen from the contents of this book below, this volume spans from the American Revolution to the current day war on terror.\r\n\r\nForeword Introduction\r\n1 The American Revolution\r\n2 The War With Mexico: America&#039;s\r\n First Catholic Military Chaplains\r\n3 The Civil War\r\n4 The Spanish-American War\r\n5 World War I\r\n6 World War II\r\n7 The Korean War\r\n8 The Vietnam War\r\n9 The War on Terror\r\nEditor&#039;s Afterword\r\nBibliography\r\n\r\nThe forward of this book opens with these words:\r\n\r\n&quot;ROMAN Catholic priests serve in persona Christi. Catholics witness that priestly service in many ways; they can see it as often as every day at Mass through the sacrifice that takes place there. But the vast majority of priests are never called to offer the supreme personal sacrifice: that of literally laying down their lives for another in moments of life and death. When it comes to military chaplains, however, many have been called to do just that. Men such as these are truly in the spiritual trenches.&quot;\r\n\r\nAnd Thomas Craughwell does an incredible job of giving us glimpses into the life, service, and at times ultimate sacrifice of these men. Craughwell himselfin the introduction sates:\r\n\r\n&quot;This isn&#039;t a comprehensive history of American Catholic military chaplains. It&#039;s not a biographical dictionary. The numbers of Catholic chaplains who have served since 1775 would make such a project daunting-there were between three and four thousand priests serving every branch of the United States armed forces in World War II alone.\r\n\r\nAnd so this is a highly selective, you might even say shamelessly biased, collection of narratives about chaplains who have traveled with our armies and navies from the American Revolution to the ongoing war on terror.&quot;\r\n\r\nHe outlines the limitations and the strengths of this book in those two paragraphs. No single volume could attest to all the men of the cloth who have served the military. But in his selections, he gives us samples of from each major conflict, and he also provides a bibliography at the end that can be a jumping off point for our own further reading, study, and edification. It was interesting as an Irish Canadian to see how many of the chaplains in this volume came from Canada, studies in Canada, or who&#039;s parents came from Canada. The same can be said for Ireland. This began with the first US Chaplain, who was &quot;Father Louis Eustache Lotbiniere, a sixty-year-old French Canadian priest recruited by Benedict Arnold to serve Catholic troops in the Continental Army.&quot; The stories in this volume are very powerful, from a priest standing on a rock giving general absolution to soldiers at Gettysburg, to a pray for a change in weather that helped turn the Battle of the Bulge. To the witness of Kapaun and Capodanno this book is filled with stories that will amaze.\r\n\r\nI am not a chaplain, not a priest, and not in the military. But the stories in this book challenge my faith, they challenge me to be a better man, a better husband, a better father, a better friend, to have more faith and be more prayerful. This is not the first book I have read about chaplains, and it will not be the last, but I can state that it is an excellent read and I recommend it to students of history, Catholics of all ilk&#039;s and walks of life, and to anyone who would read stories of true heroism, valour, courage, and faith for that is what this book is filled with.","date":"Dec 26th 2023"},{"name":"David B.","rating":"5","title":"This book provides a glimpse","text":"This book provides a glimpse of these too-soon-forgotten hero priest who served heroic men on the battlefield.

["Books/Become a Saint/Lives of the Saints"]

For nearly 200 years—standing alongside our heroic military men and women—have been heroic Catholic priests risking their lives to carry wounded soldiers to safety and to console, anoint, and absolve the dying. Heroic Catholic Chaplains spotlights the stories of these courageous, selfless, holy priests who volunteered to bring the Mass and the sacraments to American troops, while also offering them their friendship and spiritual counsel.

In this book, you’ll encounter…

  • Father William Corby, who left his post at Notre Dame to serve the Irish Brigade during all four years of the Civil War
  • Father Francis Duffy, a World War I chaplain whose story became the subject of a Hollywood movie
  • Father Aloysius Schmitt, who, during the attack on Pearl Harbor, saved the lives of a dozen men before losing his own
  • Monsignor James O’Neill, who composed the famous “Weather Prayer” for General Patton, an incident that would be immortalized in film, if not entirely accurately
  • Father Emil Kapaun, who, during months in a North Korean prison camp, worked tirelessly to save the lives and the souls of his fellow POWs (the process that could lead to Father Kapaun being declared a saint is underway)
  • Father Vincent Capodanno, who was killed by the Viet Cong as he ran to help a wounded corpsman

Heroic Catholic Chaplains brings to the fore the stories of remarkable priests, most of whom have been overlooked by both military and Catholic historians. Their sacrifice and courage are difficult to imagine. They served so that our servicemen and women would not be without comfort, or without a friend, or be deprived of the Mass and the sacraments—so they would not fall into despair. These chaplains deserve to be remembered, their stories told, and their memories honored.
