Battle Resurrection [General]
You can raise allies from the dead even in the heat of battle..
    Benefit: The casting time of your raise dead, resurrection, true resurrection, and similar spells changes to "one full-round action." Casting these spells no longer requires a material component. The recipient of the spell recovers hit points as if you had cast cure critical wounds on them.

I've never been a fan of the expensive material component for raising the dead. I've also become a fan of short-rez casting times, making them battle-useful (inspired by the druid class in WOW, which has a special resurrection spell that can be cast in combat). And the way I see it, if you the super-healer cleric, and you want to spend a FEAT on being able to cast just three rarely-cast spells in the game in a special way, it should give you a lot of bang for your buck.
