Joseph Capmas had been a priest for 13 years before joining the Oblates. Once he had made his vows as an Oblate he brought his many talents to the preaching of missions. Eugene expressed his admiration to Fr. Courtès
… Fr. Capmas is working wonders in the Dauphiné.
Letter to Hippolyte Courtès, 8 March 1830, EO VII n 343
Yvon Beaudoin writes in the Oblate Historical Dictionary:(http://www.omiworld.org/en/dictionary/historical-dictionary_vol-1_c/636/capmas-joseph-th-odore-martial/ )
In 1830, he was at Notre-Dame du Laus and worked with Father Guibert preaching missions. On April 7, 1830 Father Guibert wrote the Founder that “Father Capmas has achieved a complete grasp of the nature of these missions. His preaching is appropriate for the general population and for the learned as well. His zeal is untiring. He stops at nothing. I have often been obliged to temper his enthusiasm and to take some palliatives.”
For Jesus, all disciples who use their time and talents to make him known as loving Savior, are wonder-workers. As he rejoiced when the disciples told him about their preaching, so he continues to rejoice today as we continue proclaiming him through the quality of our lives and service. Wonder-workers in our everyday lives – the Savior’s wonder-workers.
