The return was an emotional one for many, including Nick Dellasega. He is one of Father Kapaun’s potential miracles, saying, “In 2011, I was running in a 5k and my heart stopped. People prayed and Father Kapaun saved my life, interceded for me.”
While Dellasega watched as the casket was loaded onto the hearse that would take Kapaun to Pilsen, another person waited outside the airport for his chance to catch a glimpse of the motorcade.
Chase Kear suffered a major head injury in a pole vault accident, nearly killing him. While in the hospital, his family prayed to Father Kapaun. Kear says those prayers are what saved his life.
