Hawaii normally brings idyllic scenes of blue skies and white beaches tomind. But Hell invaded Paradise when the incurable disease leprosy was discovered there. An 1865 law segregated lepers by forcibly exiling individuals - even children - to the island of Molokai. It was onto these forlorn shores that Father Damien de Veuster stepped in the spring of 1873. In an age in which an increasing number of people suffer their own personal exile on account of illness, handicap, or emotional distress, the shining example of Father Damien shows the true power of one person and how, when anchored in God's love, one person can impact the world - even among the horrors of decay and slow death. In so doing, he brought hope to the hopeless, ironically losing his own life for serving theirs.
