Catholic Hero on DVD! Soon to Be Canonized
"Molokai: The Story Of Father Damien"
Molokai is the story of a priest, Father Damien, who chose to spend his life serving in a leper colony. The movie is a heroic story of great compassion and persistence in the face of physical hardship and isolation. Filmed on location on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai, the scenery is gorgeous, and it touches on the history and culture of Hawaii.
The Vatican recently announced that Blessed Father Damien de Veuster will be canonized this October.
The movie is available on Amazon, at Christian booksellers and Netflix.
