Item Number: 4714D
To deal with the leprosy problem in the
Hawaiian Islands in 1872, sufferers were relentlessly exiled to
Molokai, a barren isle off the coast. There they lived in miserable
surroundings, abandoned by the outside world, in their labor colony. To
alleviate their fate, Father Damien was the first priest to go to
Molokai. Damien's final instructions from his bishop were that "he must
not touch anyone."
Little by little, Damien earned the trust of
the lepers, and eventually, his appeals for nuns and supplies resonated
throughout the world, much to the displeasure of his superiors.
when Damien contracted leprosy, his energy did not abate, and he
carried on working for the well-being of his "fellow lepers" to the end.
When he crumbled during Mass, he was taken to his own hospital to die.
All the residents gathered at the entrance to pray for their Father.
He is widely known as the "Apostle of the Lepers" or "The Leper Priest."
