The sainthood cause of Father Emil Kapaun, a priest of the Wichita Diocese who was a military chaplain during the Korean War an died in a prison camp, is one step closer to consideration by the pope.

Six historical consultants of the Vatican Congregation for Saints’ Causes met in Rome recently and approved the historical documents submitted by the Diocese of Wichita on behalf of Father Kapaun’s cause.

The documents were originally presented to the congregation as part of the “positio,” or position paper, for Father Kapaun and were prepared by the postulator, Andrea Ambrosi, who has visited Wichita several times.
