St. Damien of Molokai (3 Jan 1840 - 15 Apr 1889) - Father Damien was known as “The Leper Priest, the Hero of Molokai.” Originally a boy named Josef from Belgium, he joined the Sacred Heart Fathers as a young man and received the name Damien. At the age of 24, he was sent to Honolulu, Hawaii, where he was ordained and would work missions on the Big Island. About 10 years after arriving on the Hawaiian Islands, Damien volunteered to go to the leper colony on Molokai. After spending another 10 years tending to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of these outcasts, as well as building churches, hospitals, graveyards and coffins, Damien would eventually contract Hansen’s disease (leprosy) himself. Robert Louis Stevenson would write about him in 1905, and the Catholic Church would declare him venerable in 1977, beatify him in 1995, and finally canonize him as a saint in 2009. "Not without fear and loathing," Pope Benedict underlined, "Father Damian made the choice to go on the island of Molokai in the service of lepers who were there, abandoned by all. So he exposed himself to the disease of which they suffered. With them he felt at home. The servant of the Word became a suffering servant, leper with the lepers, during the last four years of his life." Damien has become the patron saint of those inflicted with leprosy and outcasts in general. He is the unofficial protective saint for those with HIV and AIDS.
