Fr. Tim Vakoc

Last night as I was getting ready to go to bed I found out that Fr. Tim Vakoc, a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis, died on Saturday. Fr. Vakoc was a millitary chaplain and was injured about five years ago when he was traveling back to the base after celebrating Mass for some soldiers. He came back to the United States and spent time in a couple of different millitary hospitals and eventually came back to Minnesota. A couple of years ago, he began to speak again and his cognition was coming back. I was speaking with fellow blogger Ben Little and we both agreed that we have gained an intercessor in heaven.
