| The True Meaning of Love
This is a solid performance by William Christopher as Father Mulcahy. He finds out that a Cardinal is coming. It drives him into an absolute tizzy with fear that all those around him will let him down. He goes around like a whirling dervish criticizing everyone. While he is in this state, two young men are in danger. One has been badly wounded and is barely hanging on. The other is waiting for him to wake up. His injuries are menial and so he spends his time at the side of his comrade. However, when he volunteers blood, Hawkeye realizes that this man (played very well by a very young Patrick Swayze) has leukemia. In the early fifties, this was pretty much a death sentence. No treatments available. What transpires is so sad and so full of the human spirit. The "sermon" delivered by Mulcahy is unforgettable.
