Sunday Comics: Catholics in Action, Part 8

Here’s part eight of Lloyd Osterdorf’s ten-part series “Catholics in Action.”  Completed between 1952-1953, the stories explored Catholic social doctrine from the standpoint of individual people instead of the realm of politics (though the two sometimes inevitably cross over).

As always, these pages come from Catholic University’s online archive of Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact.

Wow.  If you can’t get enough of chaplain stories, be sure to visit this video on Fr. Vincent Capodanno (also known as “The Grunt Padre”), in action in Vietnam several years after this comics series.
