What compelled a young priest to volunteer for an assignment that held the risk of contracting a then-incurable disease? Explore the life of Saint Damien and discover for yourself his great love for God and for every person he met. With the long-awaited canonization of Saint Damien, the whole world is shown an example of generous, self-giving love in this heroic priest who served the lepers on Moloka'i, Hawaii.
