THE HEALING PROPHET: SOLANUS CASEY
Completed July 2006
Running time: 59 minutes (TV version)
                   83 minutes (Extended Directors' cut)

THE HEALING PROPHET: SOLANUS CASEY Solanus Casey might very well become the first America born male Saint. He was a beloved Capuchin Friar who many believe had the ability to heal the sick and prophesize the future. Stories abound of how Solanus' prayers made miracles happen. He was a role model for his time and continues to be so for people today, which is why he has become a candidate for Sainthood.

Solanus Casey was born in 1870 on a Wisconsin farm to Irish immigrant parents. He had a very religious upbringing, along with 15 brothers and sisters, two of whom died during the Diphtheria Epidemic. Solanus faced such tragedies as these, by turning to God for strength and guidance. In fact, his encounter with a fatal stabbing, solidified his desire to become a Priest.

He struggled through years of religious studies and was eventually ordained a Simplex Priest and assigned the job of Porter. Many believe his lowly position as the Doorkeeper of the Monastery was providential, as it brought him into closer contact with the people, especially the poor and sick.

In 1924, he became the Porter of St. Bonaventure in Detroit, where his reputation as the "Peoples Priest" and the "Holy Priest" only increased. During the Great Depression, his concern for the poor inspired the Detroit Capuchins to establish their first Soup Kitchen.

His prayers and counsel helped sustain many families during the Polio Epidemic and WWII. Solanus knew when someone would live or die. And he helped people accept the Will of God regardless of the outcome and to have a "happy death."

Father Solanus died in 1957 at the age of 86, and his body is entombed in the Monastery at St. Bonaventure. The Solanus Casey Center was built in 2002 as a Pilgrimage Center for all faiths to learn about the living legacy of Father Solanus. And also to bear witness to the miraculous healings that continue to take place today in his name.
