Last week I gratefully received an old Belgian prayer card of Fr Doyle with an imprimator from 1939. I have scanned the card and the file can be found below.
How far and wide did devotion to Fr Doyle spread? We know that O’Rahilly’s biography was translated into more than half a dozen European languages. One person from the Netherlands has commented on the site about how his Dutch copy of the biography is a great treasure for him. We know that St Josemaria Escriva read a Spanish translation. We know that Fr Wlowdimir Ledochowski SJ, Superior General of the Jesuits from 1915-1942 (and the brother of Saint Ursula Ledóchowska and of Blessed Maria Teresia Ledóchowska) read the Italian translation of the book and commended it highly, going so far as to have it read in the refectory of the Jesuit General Curia during meals.
