"The Legacy of Vincent Robert Capodanno lives on in the undying respect and tender compassion he freely gave to each and every soldier with whom he came in contact. His story is the story of the true humanity of the Vietnan soldier's experience." - Frederic Smith, CEO, Federal Express. "I am delighted to find the story of Fr. Vincent R. Capodanno's service and sacrifice so admirably recounted in The Grunt Padre by Fr. Daniel L. Mode. I myself served as a priest and Naval/Marine Corps chaplain in Vietnam. I am both gratified and moved to find that another priest and Naval/Marine Corps chaplain, Fr. Mode, has written so eloquently of yet another priest and Naval/Marine Corps Chaplain - Fr. Capodanno, who died in battle for God and country. For over thirty years, it has been my privilege to know the story of Fr. Capodanno's holiness and heroism. I am thankful that so many others will also come to know that story through Fr. Mode's The Grunt Padre." John Cardinal O'Connor, Archbishop of New York.

To be a "Christ" is the whole meaning of Christianity. To radiate "Christ" is the whole meaning of the Christian Apostolate. But to be a "Christ" for one's own personal benefit is not enough; we have to Christianize those around us; in a word, we have to radiate "Christ." There are so many holy people that have radiated Christ in our times, but none as powerfully and effectively as Pope John Paul II and Mother Theresa of Calcutta. May we be granted the gift to radiate "Christ." This beautiful book lays a foundation to help us to radiate and Christianize our fellow man, especially in these times of decadence and non-believing Christians.

Emil Kapaun-priest, soldier and Korean War hero- is a rare man. He has been awarded the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military award, and is also being considered by the Vatican for canonization as a saint. As remarkable as this double honor are the non-Catholic witnesses who attest to Father Kapaun's heroism: the Protestants, Jews and Muslims who either served with the military chaplain in the thick of battle or endured with him the unbelievably brutal conditions of a prisoner of war camp. As journalists Roy Wenzl and Travis Heying discovered, all of these Korean War veterans, no matter their religion, agree that Father Kapaun did more to save lives and maintain morale than any other man they know. Then there are the alleged miracles-the recent healings attributed to Father Kapaun's intercession that defy scientific explanation. Under investigation by the Vatican as a necessary step in the process of canonization, these cures witnessed by non-Catholic doctors are also covered in this book. In tracking down the story of Father Kapaun for the Wichita Eagle, Wenzl and Heying uncovered a paradox. Kapaun's ordinary background as the son of Czech immigrant farmers in Kansas sowed the seeds of his greatness. His faith, generosity and grit began with his family's humility, thrift and hard work. Lavishly Illustrated with 32 pages of Photos.

Father Joseph T. O'Callahan was the first military chaplain to receive the Medal of Honor. An unlikely war hero, the bespectacled math professor who became the U.S. Navy's first Jesuit chaplain, served in combat in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters. He was on board the USS Franklin, an aircraft carrier known as "Big Ben," in the Okinawa campaign in early 1945 when a kamikaze attack nearly destroyed the ship and killed hundreds of sailors. As the Franklin lay dead in the water, consumed by flames and drifting toward Japan, the chaplain organized fire-fighting crews and ministered to the injured and dying. The carrier's captain called "Father Joe" the bravest man he ever knew. To document the Franklin's ordeal and the chaplain's actions, the author draws on interviews with survivors and O'Callahan's family and many unpublished sources.

Daring and devoted, Father Kapaun (pronounced Cape'n) gave his all for the men who were imprisoned with him in North Korea. "He saved my life," was the statement of hundreds who were dragged from the battlefield by him, who were nursed back to health, fed with the food he had "stolen," who were given the will to live and the hope of freedom by this kindly priest. All creeds, colors and classes shared in the kindness and inspiration of this man of God. "100% man," "An inspiration," "A saint." No praise is too great from the men who were with him. Reading the story of Chaplain Kapaun will inspire you. At the time this book was originally published in 1954, The author, Father Arthur Tonne, had authored 22 books, mostly volumes of sermons and collections of stories for preaching and teaching. After five years of teaching, he organized and directed for thirteen years the Newman Club att Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, where he gave more than 300 talks over radio station KTSW. He had preached missions and retreats in 22 states, and had spoken to numerous university, civic, and fraternal groups. As pastor of St. John Nepomucene, the Pilsen Catholic Church, the home parish of Chaplain Kapaun, he was in an ideal position to secure the material and background for this account of an outstanding patriot.

We had to do it. We had to reprint this book. Rarely has a book had such an impact on so many of us here at Ignatius Press. It is one of the most powerful and moving books we have come across. If you can only buy one book this season, this must be the one. Here is the astonishing true story of the harrowing experiences of a young German seminarian drafted into Hitler's dreaded SS at the onset of World War II. Without betraying his Christian ideals, against all odds, and in the face of Evil, Gereon Goldmann was able to complete his priestly training, be ordained, and secretly minister to German Catholic soldiers and innocent civilian victims caught up in the horrors of war. How it all came to pass will astound you. Father Goldmann tells of his own incredible experiences of the trials of war, his many escapes from almost certain death, and the diabolical persecution that he and his fellow Catholic soldiers encountered on account of their faith. What emerges is an extraordinary witness to the workings of Divine Providence and the undying power of love, prayer, faith, and sacrifice. Illustrated

The Vatican's silence in the face of Nazi atrocities remains one of the great controversies of our time. History has accused wartime pontiff Pius the Twelfth of complicity in the Holocaust and dubbed him “Hitler's Pope.” But a key part of the story has remained untold. Pius ran the world's largest church, smallest state, and oldest spy service. Saintly but secretive, he skimmed from church charities to pay covert couriers, and surreptitiously tape-recorded his meetings with top Nazis. When he learned of the Holocaust, Pius played his cards close to his chest. He sent birthday cards to Hitler—while secretly plotting to kill him. Church of Spies documents this cloak and dagger intrigue in shocking detail. Gun-toting Jesuits stole blueprints to Hitler's homes. A Catholic book publisher flew a sports plane over the Alps with secrets filched from the head of Hitler's bodyguard. The keeper of the Vatican crypt ran a spy ring that betrayed German war plans and wounded Hitler in a briefcase bombing. The plotters made history in ways they hardly expected. They inspired European unification, forged a U.S.-Vatican alliance that spanned the Cold War, and challenged Church teachings on Jews. Yet Pius' secret war muted his public response to Nazi crimes. Fearing that overt protest would impede his covert actions, he never spoke the “fiery words” he wanted. Told with heart-pounding suspense, based on secret transcripts and unsealed files, Church of Spies throws open the Vatican's doors to reveal some of the most astonishing events in the history of the papacy. The result is an unprecedented book that will change perceptions of how the world's greatest moral institution met the greatest moral crisis in history.
