520    "From 1914 to 1918, tens of thousands of Canadian Catholic
       men and women of Irish descent or birth rallied to the 
       Empire's call to arms against Germany and its allies. 
       Bishops, priests, Catholic newspaper editors, and Irish 
       Catholic politicians from across Canada publicly supported
       Government efforts to win the war. Despite these actions, 
       non-Catholic Canadians continued to doubt the loyalty of 
       Irish Catholics. The neutrality of Pope Benedict XV, the 
       supposed pro-Austrian sympathies of many Catholic new 
       Canadians from central Europe, Irish republicans who 
       fomented rebellion in Ireland, and the perceived 
       indifference to the war by French Canadian Catholics, 
       collectively painted all Catholics in a negative light. 
       Catholic leaders and rank-and-file Irish Catholics in 
       Canada struggled on two fronts during the Great War: 
       fighting the Empire's enemies in Europe, and defending 
       themselves against charges of disloyalty at home, because 
       of persons and issues beyond their control. In this second
       struggle Irish Catholics had to be sensitive to their 
       French Canadian co-religionists, making clear their 
       loyalty to Canada and the Empire without completely 
       alienating them. At the same time Irish Catholic leaders 
       maintained that they had a double duty--a duty to Canada 
       as a member of the British Empire, and a duty to see that 
       Ireland was given the type of self-government that they as
       Canadians enjoyed. Grounded in research from dozens of 
       archives, census data, and personnel records, this book 
       explores conflicts which threatened to irreparably divide 
       Canada along religious and linguistic lines"--|cProvided
