Quote of the day.
“It was obvious, Father said, that we must either steal food or slowly starve. And in that dangerous enterprise we must have the help of some power beyond ourselves. So, standing before us all, he said a prayer to St. Dismas, the Good Thief, who was crucified at the right hand of Jesus, asking for his aid. I’ll never doubt the power of prayer again.” Mike Dowe, 85, a prisoner of war during the Korean War, speaking of Father Emil Kapaun, who died in 1951 in a North Korean prison and is being awarded the Medal of Honor today for his ministry to fellow POWs.
