Pope to bless Maui artist's St. Damien sculpture

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) — The pope will be blessing a Maui artist's sculpture of St. Damien.
Dale Zarrella is headed to Vatican City with high-ranking clergy from the Diocese of Honolulu for Wednesday's blessing by Pope Benedict XVI.
The Maui News (http://bit.ly/HN07ZQ ) reports a 3-foot-tall, 90-pound bronze replica of a young Damien will become part of the Vatican collection. Zarrella says a second statute will be installed and blessed at a Vatican City seminary school.
Honolulu Bishop Larry Silva's visit to Rome will include a report to the pope on the state of the diocese.
Father Damien is known for caring for Hansen's disease patients forced to live on a remote Molokai peninsula in the late 1800s. He became a saint in 2009.
