I must admit that I’m a bit disappointed that very little seems to have happened to the story of Charles Untz over the years. His cause has not been opened, but it really needs some major sponsorship if it is to happen, i.e. a religious community or Catholic movement. Charles was not part of a movement, per se, he was just a very devout young man. He was very involved in the Boy Scouts, but they aren’t looking for a patron saint.
People should note some of the stories found in the letter of Fr. Constantine Belisarius concerning the intercession of Charles:
“A teenage girl in Michigan has a real big brother relationship with Charles. She is convinced that on several occasions he has protected her from physical harm. She invites him to come with her to adoration and she feels his presence with her during adoration. She has asked Charles to teach her how to pray and he seems to be doing just that! Contemplative prayer.”
I’ve heard of people that feel that Charles is watching out for them. I can’t say I’ve experienced anything specific myself, but there are cases out there.
Here’s a little more from a letter from Fr. Belisarius.
“One of the things I learned about Charles in doing the preliminary research for ‘My Lady’s Knight’ was the incredible aptness of this title for this person. Charles was a very strong person physically and morally. Every day he climbed a mooring rope his Dad had saved from one of his tours of duty on a submarine, hand over hand, all the way up the very thick rope. He was pure and chaste in his dealings with young girls and women; he respected them and protected them, just as his heavenly Mother whose ‘favors’ he wore in her scapular, would want. He loved horses and knew how to ride and how to care for horses; how to deliver foals and kid goats. Animals were in his genes; his mother had studied to be a veterinarian, and on their hobby farm he had plenty of occasion to learn ‘the discipline of the rising sun’. Animals need to be cared for if they are domesticated and he did just that. His parents had reached the point that they had no difficulty leaving the whole operation of the farm in Charles’ hands and knowing that an excellent job would be done.”
I hope more people will learn about him and ask his intercession:
