New film recalls faith, sacrifice of Maryknoll chaplain killed in Vietnam

(CNS) Fifty years after he put himself between a wounded Marine and fatal enemy gunfire, the story of Maryknoll Father Vincent R. Capodanno’s faith and sacrifice is being retold in a new movie.

His memory is cherished by those who knew him, his cause for canonization is promoted by those with whom he served and a new generation of young Catholics in his old neighborhood has come to know the Staten Island native.

Capodanno’s story may reach its largest audience yet when “Called and Chosen,” a 90-minute movie of his life, premieres August 30 on EWTN. [More]
