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.

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.
