“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.

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