Father Damien is Alive and Well

Check out the documentary film trailer the Damien Project has lauched:

I have the great opportunity to help build the documentary which seeks to enliven the Spriti of Damien to reach out to the Anawim-God’s “little ones” and touch them-no matter what!

We are looking for funding for the film that seeks to unleash a new viral spirit of caring and volunteerism.

We are working on creating a school curriculum design that will carry the Spirit of Saint Damien to today’s world via the youth and retired boomers.

(Canonization of October 11, 2009)

Damien enlisted the help of Mother Marianne  and Brother Dutton and so many others. News about Damien’s willingness to reach out and touch the 8000 exiled leper prisoners  of Molokai was a epidmeic of goodness on fire.

What can you and I do to sustain the Spriti of Damien?

 

More to follow.

    Aloha! I ran across this post; thought I’d do my best to add something from Hawaii. I work with a well known artist here in Hawaii who has captured a few images of Father Damien and Mother Marianne, two of which were given to Bishop Larry Silva; they hang in the Cathedral of our Lady of Peace in Honolulu.

    The artist and I (his printer), are open to any discussion regarding sales of these images, possibly a way to help create funding for you.. who knows! I’ve included two links of interest.. one, the website showing the images and this link below to a very recent article in the Hawaii Catholic Herald…
