Hawaii's Fr. Damien is Now a Saint

Growing up in Hawaii Fr. Damien was mentioned in our public school textbooks as a helper of lepers. The state of Hawaii has always been proud of his work among the lepers of Molokai. The state of Hawaii also has a high school (it's a Catholic parochial school) named after him. Now I'm sure they wouldn't mind renaming their school St. Damien now! The picture (right) is Fr. Damien showing him with the advanced stages of leprosy.
