“As a boy, I remember riding in our family car along the newly commissioned Fr. Capodanno Blvd in Staten Island, and asking my Dad about this great man. As a Catholic Italian-American Naval Officer like Fr. C (BTW with a Confirmation name of Vincent!), I truly believe he intercedes for us and will one day be a canonized saint – and I commit my best effort to the Cause.”
