Theology Today: A Town and Gown Presentation
Thursday, November 8, 2018
7:30 pm in St. Vincent's Auditorium
Topic: "Reflecting Light in the Darkness: The Selfless Sacrifices of Military Chaplains Father Emil Kapaun and Father Vincent Capodanno"
During these challenging days in our world and church, the selfless lives of Fathers Emil Kapaun and Vincent Capodanno provide examples of those who bring the light of Christ to the darkest of life’s circumstances. Following the call of Christ, both men pursued seminary studies and were ordained to the priesthood. With hearts configured to Jesus Christ the Good Shepherd, both responded to the spiritual needs of our men and women in uniform in time of war. Following Christ to the end, they both gave their lives caring for their flocks on the battlefields of Korea and Vietnam. These contemporary examples call all of us forward in our response to Christ.
