Our High Priest

An image of the Eucharist

At the of a battle in the War a vital communication between a certain division and Army battle headquarters went dead. Somewhere the enemy shells had cut the wire and it was absolutely essential to get it repaired at once. Only one signalman was available in the divisional staff dugout at the moment and he went out to find the break and join it. In a few minutes the messages began coming through again. An hour later the had still not returned and a party went to look for him. He was found lying beside the line, holding together in his hands the two broken ends, with a great shell wound over his heart from which he had bled to death.

There follows a comment on this shocking story…
