Frank was, to my mind, a very chosen soul (sacerdos vietima) Our Lord gave him a special call to suffering, and he met it with the cheerful courage which all who knew him would expect of him. 1 am glad to have known him and to have led him during the last years of his preparation for the priesthood."
