Deacon Jozef Dupont, C.SS.R. (1893-1916)

Deacon Jozef Dupont was born at Antwerp, Flanders, on 31 January, 1893. He was professed as a Redemptorist on 29 September 1913. He died on the battlefield where he, like so many Flemish Redemptorists, served as a stretcher-bearer in World War I, on 20 December 1916. The beautiful image we reproduce here is from his mortuary card and represents him in his habit with the Red Cross arm-band. †
