St. Damien of Molokai: Apostle of the Exiled
Here is the riveting account of how a humble priest found his vocation in caring for outcast lepers. Damien, the poorly educated son of a hardworking, religious Belgian farm family, was thought to be ill suited for the priesthood. However, his desire to serve God overcame all obstacles and he took his vows at the age of twenty.
As a missionary to Hawaii, Damien soon volunteered to become the permanent chaplain to Molokai ... where exiled lepers led a harsh existence and looked forward to a disfiguring and lingering death.
This story, written by Margaret and Matthew Bunson, demonstrates how just one man of faith can transform and uplift the lives of even the most destitute.
