Product Overview

This is the definitive biography of Fr. Vincent Robert Capodanno, a chaplain for the Marine Corps during the Vietnam war. Greatly beloved by so many who served under his spiritual care, Fr. Capodanno died on the field of battle giving the last rites to the US soldiers he served so well. He was just declared a "Servant of God" by the Vatican, which is is the first major step toward the canonization of a saint.

Fr. Mode recounts the story of Capodanno's life growing up in America, and shows how he prepared himself so well to serve God and his fellow man with such deep love and courage. He truly embodied the ideal of "dying to yourself" in the service of others, and inspired that ideal in all those around him. Fr. Mode includes moving first-hand testimonies by those who knew and served with Fr. Capodanno. Illustrated.
