Priest On Titanic Gives His Life To Hear Confessions
I just read the incredibly moving story of Father Thomas Byles, a priest on the Titanic. He had at least two offers to get on a lifeboat and turned them both down, saying “his duty was to stay on the ship while one soul wanted his ministrations.”
What a holy man, a man to emulate. If I ever hear his cause for canonization has been opened, I will be among those praying for it.
