One of my heroes is made a saint by the Roman Catholic Church - though he has been a saint to Hawaii for a century. A great day.
By the way, this photo is of the statue of Father Damien in front of the the State House of the State of Hawaii. Pretty interesting that a religious figure should have such a prominent place in front of the official building of government - but that illustrates just what sort of impact this one man had on an entire culture and indeed now on an entire world. God bless him.
