St. Damien of Molokai - Apostle of the Exiled. Saint Damien of Molokai is the riveting account of how a humble Congregation of
the Sacred Hearts priest found a vocation in caring for lepers that led him to his upcoming canonization in October 2009.
Hawaii normally brings idyllic scenes of blue skies and white beaches to mind. But Hell invaded Paradise when the incurable
disease leprosy was discovered there. An 1865 law segregated lepers by forcibly exiling individuals--even children--to the island of
Molokai. It was onto these forlorn shores that Father Damien de Veuster stepped in the spring of 1873.
In an age in which an increasing number of people suffer their own personal exile on account of illness, handicap, or emotional
distress, the shining example of Father Damien shows the true power of one person and how, when anchored in God's love, one
person can impact the world--even among the horrors of decay and slow death. In so doing, he brought hope to the hopeless, ironically
losing his own life for serving theirs. Paperback, 288 pages.
