Father Emil Joseph Kapaun
Servant of God
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.
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!

What a pleasure it was to read this article and learn about Fr. Kapaun. He was an honorable, pious, and charitable man.
