The courage of the Catholic priest is superbly shown in this image. The rage of a battle is howling all around, while the priest fearlessly helps move a wounded soldier. Why this artwork is called "The Standard," is probably due to the flag or standard which the wounded soldier is clutching to in the center. Perhaps also, the intention of the artist was to display 'The Standard' of charity—caring for our fellow man for the sole purpose of bringing glory to God.
