Faith is the beginning of our life with God, and it leads to true freedom. Despite their imprisonment in the POW camp, Father Kapaun encouraged his men to find the freedom and strength that faith offers us.
One of the greatest things that Father Kapaun did was to inspire the virtue of hope in his men, a virtue that helped many of them survive the terrible conditions of the prison camp and set their sights on something higher than this world. Are you a man of hope? Do you bring hope to those around you?
When we realize that love is willing the good of the other and sacrificing for them, we come to realize that love is the manliest of virtues. This video explores the many ways Father Kapaun sacrificed for his boys and showed them the love of Christ, encouraging us to do the same.
