Link to podcast of radio interview with Station of the Cross Radio Network

Last week I took part in a fantastic 1 hour radio discussion about Fr Doyle with Fr Robert McTeigue SJ on his radio programme The Catholic Current. It was great to chat with Fr McTeigue and it see his enthusiasm and interest in the life and example of his fellow Jesuit Fr Doyle.

Fr Doyle left his training camp and headed to the continent 103 years ago today. Here are his sentiments on this occasion, as captured in a letter written to his father just half an hour before departure.

I set out to face to future with a certain amount of trepidation…Strange to say, I have not the smallest anxiety about the possible dangers of warfare, not so great for me, as for others, but I do dread the horrors of the battlefield which all say no words can picture. Still it is a consolation to know what a comfort the mere presence of a priest is to both officers and men alike. They are one and all going to face their duty with the joy of heart which comes with a clear conscience; many of them had not been to confession for over twenty years.
