Book Suggestion: The grunt padre by Daniel L. Mode is the true story of a young priest who was a missionary in China. When the Vietnam war started , he asked to be a military chaplain and was assigned to a Marine Corp unit in Vietnam. He formed strong bonds with all of the men and even though he did not engage in battle, he was always with them in the midst of the fighting. In one particularly brutal battle, a young soldier was critically wounded and Father Capodonna went out into the line of fire to bring him back. Father Capodonna himself was killed doing this. Two years later, He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor! Two years ago, he was canonized a Saint by Pope Francis. In September, EWTN is starting a series about this remarkable priest! The book is available in our Epiphany Parish Library and is a fascinating read.
