"Come see how a priest dies in battle, but he dies not!"
"This book faithfully captures the essential aspects of the character of Father J. Verbis Lafleur, an exceptional member of the greatest generation. Readers will be inspired by his unselfish dedication to his three loves: God, country, and those committed to his care."
Most Reverend Michail Jarrell, Bishop of Lafayette
"Reading about Father Lafleur is reading about the life of a saint. His pastoral and saintly ministry, during ordinary and extraordinary circumstances is so inspirational. Only a saint could minister so effectively during those oppressive times."
Most Reverend William J. Dendinger
Bishop of Grand Island, Nebraska
Chaplain, Major General (Retired)
Chief of the Air Force Chaplain Service
"The story of Father J. Verbis Lafleur, priest and military chaplain, is poignantly told. He was an ordinary priest with extraordinary courage who, as a prisoner of war, ministered to the spiritual, emotional and despairing feelings of fellow prisoners under the most inhumane conditions. He died not only as a hero, but as a priest who served others compassionately to the very end."
Most Reverend Joseph A. Fiorenza
Archbishop Emeritus, Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston
"Lieutenant Colonel Peter J. Guerra has done an outstanding work in bringing before us the work of such an outstanding priest, Father J. Verbis Lafleur, a priest of the diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana. The author keeps alive the memory of such a heroic man and also reminds us all about the devastation and cruelty of any war. Lieutenant Colonel Guerr is skilled in bringing forth the facts in a fascinating fashion."
Most Reverend Harry J. Flynn
Archbishop Emeritus, Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis
