A while back when I was in Hawaii, my mom excitedly mentioned that Fr. Patrick, the pastor of her parish church Blessed Sacrament, had received a framed picture of Blessed Damien of Molokai. The arrival of Blessed Damien's picture caused my mom as well as one of the Filippini Sisters at the parish to revive their interest in Blessed Damien. They couldn't wait to read a book about him and were eager to pray for his canonization using holy cards I provided for them.
It was with a lot of interest that I hoped to be able to see the picture. However, when Joey and I arrived the picture was not on display.
A few weeks later, I finally asked Fr. Patrick about it and he was kind enough to pull it out to show it to me. It really was more beautiful than I had imagined. The pictures above don't really do the print or painting (I can't really tell which one it is) justice. If you click to enlarge you may see it better.
Mahalo Fr. Patrick for permitting me to take the pictures as well as agreeing to be in the pictures ;-)
