This is the timely story of Father Damien De Veuster, the intrepid priest who, instead of fleeing sickness to preserve his own health, rather gave his life for those suffering from the horrors of leprosy. Damien spent the best years of his life on Molokai, servicing the colony of banished lepers both spiritually and physically. A hero of selflessness and zeal, Damien himself succumbed to the ravages of the disease at the age of forty-six.
