(ACI/EWTN Noticias) - Castellano estuvo al mando del destructor USS Bainbridge, un buque de guerra estadounidense, durante el exitoso operativo que culmin贸 el 12 de abril de 2009, en la noche del domingo de Pascua.

El carguero Maersk Alabama fue secuestrado el 9 de abril de 2009. El capit谩n Richard Phillips -interpretado por Tom Hanks- salv贸 a su tripulaci贸n y su barco entreg谩ndose como reh茅n a los delincuentes. Los secuestradores armados con ametralladoras AK- 47 abandonaron el barco a bordo de un bote salvavidas y durante tres d铆as lo mantienen cautivo.

El comandante Castellano -interpretado por Yul Vazquez- a bordo del buque Bainbridge persigui贸 a los piratas, entabl贸 comunicaci贸n con ellos y trat贸 de calmarlos. La tensi贸n dur贸 72 horas.

Castellano, un ex monaguillo que ahora sirve como gu铆a, lector y ministro extraordinario de la Comuni贸n, asegura que su fe lo ayud贸 en ese dif铆cil momento.

"No necesitas ser capit谩n de un buque de guerra o presidente de una empresa o algo por estilo para ser un h茅roe", expres贸 Castellano en una entrevista a los Caballeros de Col贸n.

"Cada d铆a podemos hacer algo, poco a poco, para seguir adelante y mostrar rasgos heroicos, solamente siendo aut茅nticos, hombres cat贸licos, hombres de fe".

"Creo que todos los padres son h茅roes para sus familias", dijo Castellano.

"Sus hijos y esposas los admiran. Pienso que nuestro llamado al hero铆smo en la vida cotidiana significa ser miembros permanentes de la comunidad, defender lo que creemos, ser modelos a seguir como padres, y modelos a seguir para la comunidad, ayudando a los m谩s necesitados y entreg谩ndoles nuestro tiempo".

"Ser padre es algo muy importante junto con las obligaciones que esto implica lo que incluye ser un modelo a seguir para tus hijos, ir a la iglesia, expresar tu fe, rezar con tu familia, y estar ah铆 cuando te necesiten. T煤 quieres ser el mejor para tus hijos, y la mejor manera de hacer esto posible es buscando ser un gran ejemplo para ellos", a艅adi贸.

"Para mi, ser cat贸lico es muy importante. Durante la misi贸n de rescate del capit谩n Richard Phillips, mi fe cat贸lica junto con ser un Caballero de Col贸n jugaron un rol muy importante en lo que yo cre铆a, quer铆amos traer al capit谩n Phillips de vuelta a casa para la seguridad de su familia y resguardar el bienestar de todos", a艅adi贸.

Castellano, lejos considerarse un h茅roe por su participaci贸n en el rescate, expresa su admiraci贸n por los marinos del Maersk Alabama quienes sin haber recibido entrenamiento para este tipo de situaciones, pudieron recuperar su nave.
