A Roman Catholic priest, who served as an army chaplain during the Korean War, is the latest recipient of the Medal of Honor. Today President Obama bestowed the medal posthumously on Emil Kapaun, who died as a prisoner of war at the age of 35. But his story lived on through the troops he saved in various ways from braving enemy fire to caring for captured soldiers’ wounds. Obama said during a White House ceremony today that Kapaun showed a touch of divinity in the worst of circumstances.
What is "a touch of divinity"?
Your help will be appreciated.
PS Come to think of it, that belief is what Christianity is all about. But this is not the place to pursue that argument.

Indeed, it's not the place to discuss religion. But if the guy wasn't a chaplain/priest, I don't think Obama would refer to his actions (braving enemy fire to care for soldier's wounds) as 'divine'. Maybe if the chaplain had been performing miracles ...
