    One thought on “Damien the Leper”

    1. This 1954 paperback copy of the biography of Damien of Molokai is actually a reprint of the prior edition from 1937 published by Steel and Ward, Inc in 1937 It is important to note that it is a biography and not a hagiography Nonetheless, in the interest of full disclosure, it should also be noted that at the time he wrote this book, John Farrow was a fairly recent convert to Catholicism, and received from Pope Pius XI, the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre in 1937, for writi [...]

    2. Terrific book First time I heard of it was when I was teaching 8th grade in Granite School District I read it and prepared to teach it Very powerful book A few years later, I traveledd to Hawaii and heard the account of this amazing priest from a local guide in the city where it all happened It is wel worth the time to read The world would be a much nicer place for all of us if we all were the kinds of Christians that Damien was.

    3. A good and decently researched book on Fr Damien At times it can be a little hagiographical or dramatic, but the author has definitely done his research, even if he dramatizes it a bit here or there.

    4. A very engaging book It reads like a novel It was also very interesting to read a book written much closer to the time St Damien lived than others that I had read.

    5. This was a Salvation Army random pick up Don t overlook the book possibilities at your local S A boutique Missionaries, especially from the previous century often get a bad wrap This being a Catholic missionary, and me with a very Protestant upbringing should make for an interesting and enlightening read Just finished, and I am surprised by how much I enjoyed and got from reading this historical account I like history, and pick up historical biographies often, to never finish because they are ju [...]

    6. Advice To Be Read on ShipboardTo find the good in a thing at once is a sign of good taste Some seek the good in life, others the ill There is nothing that has no good in it But many have such a scent that amidst a thousand excellences they fix upon a single defect as if they were scavengers of men s minds and hearts So they draw up a balance sheet of defects which does credit to their bad taste than to their intelligence They lead a sad life, nourishing themselves on bitters and garbage They ha [...]

    7. Dipping than a few toes into sensationalism, Farrow writes of the conditions of the leper colony on Molokai Those people, already doomed to death, had been exiled to die in surroundings and conditions they bitterly resented Feeling that they were beyond the power of any earthly law, and having no knowledge or assurance of any other, they abandoned themselves to their fate with apathy alternating with orgies Supplies were soon exhausted The stronger stole from the weak The agonies of the dying w [...]

    8. Published in 1951, the life story of Father Damien, born in Belgium but spent the majority of his life on a Hawaiian Island to which lepers were banned An amazing account of his faith strength and commitment to improving the lives of lepers As is to be expected, within several years of his death, discounters and critics arose The final chapter is a lengthy and wordy letter written by Robert Louis Stevenson, putting to shame a doubter An inspiring read.

    9. Incredible life of a man committed to his calling Appeared to be objective, helping us understand you don t have to be perfect to accomplish good work and impact people in a positive way Also a good commentary on the difference between government run charities and those run by religious or private organizations Highly recommend

    10. I have read several books on Father Damien This was a reread for me This is not a religious or Catholic book It is a well written even as old as it is ,still readable biography of a great man who had compassion for all regardless of faith or health Father Damien chose to go to Molokai knowing that at some point he too would contract the disease A great lesson for myself

    11. Amazing story of the missionary priest in Hawaii, written for the devout in a style that is unfortunately dated This includes attitudes towards the natives, and women in general I grew up with the Image paperbacks, but not for everyone.

    12. Interesting read on the history of leprosy in the Hawaiian Island Of course, I found it inspiring to read about someone who so genuinely cared about his neighbors regardless of their race, sex, or religion.

    13. Fr Damien is a real hero and saint,he did so much and gave so much of himself including his own life to help the poor lepers in Molokai,Hawaii.

    14. Another confirmation present from Aunt Clara I don t really know that it is a great book or anything but I love my Aunt Clara for giving it to me.

    15. Quick simple read Given to rhetorical flourish, and could easily have been trimmed down, but still a fine retelling of this interesting and devoted life.

    16. I enjoyed this little book It is a quick read, and succinctly tells the heroic tale of Father Damien It will leave you feeling inspired, and than just a little inadequate.
