Born in 1870 to Irish Catholic parents on a farm near Oak Grove, WI, Bernard Francis Casey spent his youth less than 50 miles from the Diocese of Winona. In 1896, after years of discernment he distinctly heard the Blessed Mother telling him, “Go to Detroit” where the Capuchins lived and served. Serving the people of Detroit, they knew him as a humble Capuchin Friar, valued for his wise and compassionate counsel. The Capuchins documented hundreds of exceptional favors attributed to Fr. Solanus, with people attributing their healing to his intercession. In May of this year, the Church investigated one such exceptional favor and declared it a miracle, paving the way for the Beatification of Fr. Solanus Casey. The life of Fr. Solanus Casey was paved with 87 years of giving through his immeasurable love for people and for what he could do for them, through God. After decades of earthly service to the people of God, he took his last breath on July 31, 1957 and uttered the words “I give my soul to Jesus Christ.”
