Meditation on Father Kapaun’s Death:

“It’s tough, but remember one thing: that if something happens you are in God’s hands.”

These words of Father Kapaun on the battlefield capture his complete trust in God.

They reflect how he offered his life for God and his fellow POWs.

In Father Kapaun’s eyes, his death wasn’t a tragedy, it was a step towards heaven.

As we ask Father Kapaun’s intercession today and celebrate his holy life, let’s try to imitate his trust.

It’s all in God’s hands.

Please continue to join us in prayer, and have a kolace to celebrate!
