Letter by Robert Louis Stevenson re: Fr. Damien of Molokai, the "Leper Priest"...


And H/T Mozlink for a great blog with more information, especially for "new atheists" who think they know so much more than the rest of the world, about everything under the sun.
Fr. Damien was a hero and a living Saint in his time. He was canonized October 11, 2009, much to the chagrin of many a "know-it-all" ignoramous. Irony. Gotta love it!
I recently watched the documentary on EWTN about Fr. Damien and I was moved, and touched by this holy man's perseverence and heroic life, ministering to the poorest of the poor, the lepers - much as did Mother Teresa in India on the streets of Calcutta. God rest his soul and please Father Damien, I know you love those who hated you, please pray for us, for me to do the same. Amen.
