Father Emil Joseph Kapaun
 Servant of God

PRAYER

Lord Jesus,
in the midst of the folly of war,
your servant, Chaplain Emil Kapaun
spent himself in total service to you
on the battlefields and
in the prison camps of Korea,
until his death at the hands of his captors.

We now ask you, Lord Jesus,
if it be your will,
to make known to all the world
the holiness of Chaplain Kapaun and the
glory of his complete sacrifice for you by
signs of miracles and peace.

In your name, Lord, we ask,
for you are the source of peace,
the strength of our service to others,
and our final hope. 

Amen

Chaplain Kapaun, pray for us.

Cool. I’m more inclined to think prayers directly to God in Jesus name are what got the job done. But a great outcome nonetheless.

Pole vaulting, huh? Dang.

What the article omits is that Fr. Kapaun was awarded the Bronze Star, the Legion of Merit, and the Distinguished Service Cross for his service during the Korean War.

There is a chapel and a Kaserne named after Fr. Kaupaun. A monument to him stand (stood?) before the chapel. which is in Kaiserslautern, Germany. WHAT a Guy!

We happen to think that men like Joseph Kapaun have pull with the brass.

“I’m more inclined to think prayers directly to God in Jesus name are what got the job done.”

So do Catholics. We also believe that Fr. Kapaun did some of the praying.

Radical egalitarianism would insist that every person’s prayers are as efficacious as any other person’s.

Personally, I don’t believe that. I think Fr. Kapaun’s prayers carry a lot more weight than mine.

Fr. Kapaun is dead, as are all the other people in the ground or in the sea. Dead, dead, dead. Never to rise again until the First or Second Resurrection, depending on their status.

I’ve read a book about Fr. Kapaun. I cannot immediately recall the title, but I havn’t forgotten how inspiring it was. There is no doubt in my mind that Fr. Kapaun is a saint, and I’d love to see it become official.

That makes it very clear for me, dsc. I like how you phrased it. Thanks.

“Fr. Kapaun is dead, as are all the other people in the ground or in the sea. Dead, dead, dead.”

Fr. Kapaun is in Heaven. Heaven, Heaven, Heaven.

Or perhaps you deny the Transfiguration and, the presence of Moses and Elijah. The Bible says they were there, but you say they were “Dead, dead, dead.”

Let’s see, whom shall I believe? Bible, rabidralph, Bible, rabidralph, Bible, rabidralph...tough choice.

Thank you very much for your kind words. I was running very low on kind words tonight.

So, I take it you’re not a Catholic?
