By Francis J. Murphy (professor of history at Boston College) Exciting new biography and anthology of French Discalced Carmelite friar-priest, educator, son of the working class, prisoner at Mauthausen-who died as a result of his efforts to rescue Jewish children from the Nazis, and who has been honored by the State of Israel and proposed for canonization. Includes index and 13 pages of photos.Film director Louis Malle's 1987 tribute to his former headmaster in the celebrated autobiographical film, Au revoir les enfants, helped spark a renewed interest in Lucien-Louis Bunel (1900-1945), better known by his religious name of Pere Jacques. Yet the film told only a small part of the story. Pere Jacques is remembered today for his extraordinary ability to bridge the differences of class, ideology, nationality, and religion that often divide the human family. Proud son of devout working-class parents, with a life-long commitment to social justice, he became director of an elite preparatory school for sons of the most prominent families of France. He was a member of the Discalced Carmelites, a religious order dedicated to prayer and solitude, yet spent himself tirelessly in the service of others. A fervent Catholic priest, he was admired and trusted by non-believers and communist fellow-prisoners in the concentration camp of Mauthausen. He was a Christian who died as a result of his efforts to harbor Jewish youth during World War II. Both the State of Israel and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum have honored him as a rescuer, one of the 'Righteous among the Nations.' This exciting new biography by Francis J. Murphy, professor of history at Boston College, retraces the entire career of Pere Jacques from its humble beginnings to its heroic conclusion, carefully situating him within the religious and social context of his times. Also included are previously unpublished excerpts from his writings, 13 pages of photos, and an extensive bibliography. Pere Jacques: Resplendent in Victory offers an informative and compelling introduction to a truly great man, whose cause for canonization was opened in 1990.

Arar
This is the story of Pere Jacques - the teacher who was portrayed in Louis Malle's film, Au Revoir les Enfants, and whose heroic stance in hiding Jewish children from the Nazis led to his death. The writing style employed by Francis Murphy is happily free from embellishments and emotional overlay or projection. He lets the subject-matter speak for itself, and the power of the story is all the more apparent. Pere Jacques was a person who embodied the essence of Carmelite spirituality, which he drew upon as a source of strength. Francis Murphy brings to us a person who strove to be a man of God in times when his courage and moral integrity were tested beyond what could normally be endured. This is a definite must for anybody who is interested in the history of the Holocaust, Catholic history in World War II or spirituality. It is a portrait of the way that the evil of the Nazi regime revealed the bravery and moral integrity of those who took a stand against it.

This engaging biography presents the life of Lucien Bunel (1900-1945), also known as the Carmelite priest, Pere Jacques. Louis Malle's film AU REVOIR, LES ENFANTS details an episode in his own life when he saw Pere Jacques as headmaster shelter three Jewish boys in his boarding school. Imprisoned by the Nazis, Pere Bunel used his prayerful interior strength to endure hardships at the same time that he helped other prisoners. Tubercular, he died only three weeks after liberation from Mauthausen. The author wisely appends to his clear narrative some writings by Bunel, a testimonial from a fellow prisoner, notes, and a bibliography that summons the reader to learn more. The references to Carmelite spirituality, contemplation, and French devotionalism ought not put the reader off. They are necessary to comprehend the man and his motivation. This reviewer reminds readers that diverse spiritualities exist among Christians.

At one time or another, most people have been deeply touched by a remarkable teacher. At times people may wish to give a fitting tribute to that teacher, sharing with others the goodness they have experienced. Few people, however, can do what Louis Malle did in his 1987 film AU REVOIR LES ENFANTS (GOOD-BYE CHILDREN)and few people have experienced as remarkable a teacher as his.
AU REVOIR LES ENFANTS recounts how Father Jasques Bunel sheltered three Jewish students in his boarding school during the Nazi occupation of France where Louis Malle was also a student. In January 1944 the Gestapo suddenly arrived at the school and arrested the three Jewish students, a Jewish faculty member and Pere Jacques. The film, however, only covers the most famous incident in the life of Pere Jacques. Francis J. Murphy's book reveals this as one remarkable event in the life of a remarkable man.
A native of Northern France, Lucien-Louis Bunel was born in 1900 into a devout working class family. He was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Rouen in 1925. His first assignment was to a school where he quickly proved to be not only a talented teacher but a preacher much in demand throughout the diocese; a friend of youth, the sick and workers. Despite being an apostolic dynamo, or perhaps on account of it, Father Lucien maintained a strong and intense prayer life--so strong that both prior to and after ordination, he seriously considered joining a Trappist monastery. Eventually he realized that his pastoral abilities would not be utilized in the cloistered life and instead joined the Discaled Carmelites in 1930, taking the name, Jacques de Jesus. While still in simple vows his superiors directed him to found, with only six months preparation, a prepatory high school. Here Pere Jacques fully exploited his gifts as a holistic and progressive educator.
As France fell to Nazi occupation Pere Jacques, ever the French patriot, supported the resistance movement. He chafed against Nazxi anti-semitic policies and hired a distinguished university professor who had been dismissed because he was Jewish. In 1943 Pere Jacques took in three Jewish boys and gave them false identites. His religious superior approved and supported his work. He ominously told Pere Jacques, "Do what you must; come what may." A year later the Gestapo raided the school. The Jewish students and teacher were taken to Auschwitz and immediately killed. Pere Jacques approached his own Calvary in prison and concentration camps. Even here he displayed his strong leadership and pastoral skills. He would rise early each morning and visit the sick sharing with them what became his starvation rations. He even learned Polish so as to minister to the many Polish prisoners. Those he continued to serve and love included atheists and Communists. He lived to see the liberation of his camp in May 1945, but less than a month later died as a result of his cruel treatment while imprisoned.
In addition to the film by Louis Malle, Pere Jacques has been posthumously honored by the State of Israel and the United States Holocaust Memorial Musuem. His cause for beatification was introduced in 1990.
Francis Murphy's book is clear and moves at a good pace. In addition to telling the story of Pere Jacques, he offers selections of his writings. He admirably situates the events of Pere Jacques' life into the broader historical context of that time.
Pere Jacques represents not so much the triumph of the human spirit but rather the triumph of the Holy Spirit through the human spirit. His intense prayer and intense pastoral activity, even in the most dehumanizing of circumstances, makes him a model of Christian courage. May we all show simliar courage following the counsel give to Pere Jacques of by his superior, "Do what you must; come what may."
