You may want to take a few notes from Army veteran, Chaplain (Capt.) Emil J. Kapaun, whose story is told in the podcast below.

As a Chaplain in the Korean War, the actions Kapaun took cost him his life and earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor.

His life was so heroic, so pure, and so dedicated to others, that he may eventually be recognized as a Saint in the Catholic Church.

Father John Hotze, a priest from the Diocese of Wichita, Kansas, has spent years documenting Father Kapaun’s actions (which many surviving POWs regard as true miracles) and working on his Cause for Canonization.

He shared some legendary stories of Kapaun — which could easily serve as a guide for “How To Live Like A Saint.”
