Father Capodanno is sworn into the US Navy on December 28, 1965.

A recent article from Catholic World Report highlights how Father Capodanno emulated Christ through his virtuous life and heroic death.  The article states:

“Not only on the day he died but in all his time serving men in battle, Fr. Capodanno had an incredible ability to do the one thing that most of us could never do: Completely ignore the human person’s basic instinct for survival. He cared more about serving and saving others than he did about himself. In this he completely emulated Jesus Christ, Who taught us, ‘Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.’

This is why even if it takes 300 years for the Vatican to recognize Father’s sanctity, many believe there is no doubt that this icon of Our Lord and Savior is one of the saintliest men of modern times.”
