that gave rise to the cult of the saints is beautifully articulated in this piece about Fr. Emil Kapaun, a very great man:

“He’s in my prayers every night,” Dowe says. “I ask him to help me rather than asking God to help him.”

God rest his soul and raise him to the altar soon through Christ our Lord.
