Description

Excerpt from Bulletin C. P, Vol. 6: Octave of Saint Paul of the Cross; May 5, 1944 Another Passionist amid the dirt, noise, sweat, and pure hell of Roose velt Ridge, New Guinea, knew what Paul Danei knew when Austrian guns spit back at the Spanish in the storm ing of Monte Argentato. As a watch ing soldier affirmed: A shell burst, wounding three soldiers and knock ing them into a ditch. Fr. Paul jump ed down immediately to prepare them for death. Just then the next shell exploded exactly where he had been standing. Others ministering to the sick in their hospitals and dispensaries have felt the nausea and weariness of the first Passionist when he combed the region of Pisa, near the Lake of Orbetello. It was Summer then, and the heat was excessive. A siege was on and several maladies raged through the army camps. Yet despite fatigue and danger, Fr. Paul's record states, with untiring zeal and charity, he did not cease to hear confessions. Still others know the hardship and difficulty Paul of the Cross met in contacting the men in ordinary Camp routine. Not in immediate dan ger of death, many of the soldiers became lax forgetful of their obligations and unresponsive to the Chaplain's pleadings.
