Saint Damien of Moloka'i



"I feel myself to be the happiest missionary in the world."
- Saint Damien

Prayer from the Liturgy of Saint Damien

Father of mercy,
in Saint Damien you have given us a shining witness of love
for the poorest and most abandoned.
Grant that, by his intercession,
as faithful witnesses of the heart
of your Son, Jesus,
we too may be servants of the most needy
and rejected.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the
Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen.

from Saint Damien de Veuster Missionary of Moloka'i, Pauline Books and Media
