Blessed Solanus Casey (1870-1957)

Again and again, in his letters, he repeated his life's message--that confidence in God is the very soul of prayer and became the condition for supernatural intervention in our lives. "God condescends to use our powers if we don't spoil His plans by ours," he frequently wrote.
Father Solanus died July 31, 1957, on the 53rd anniversary of his first Mass.
If he becomes sainted, he will be the first American-born man thus honored. Elizabeth Ann Seton was canonized in 1976.
