A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway

Priest

A friend of Henry's, the young priest of the division is characterized by his ability to maintain faith in God alongside a cynicism with regard to the war. The priest often serves as counselor to Henry, explaining to him the difference between love and lust as well as the futility of the war. Despite having faith, the priest is a respectable character in the novel because his belief in God stems from a deliberate choice; it is not used to escape from the world.
