Born in 1840, Fr. Damien spent the last 16 years of his life on the Hawaiian island of Moloka'i. For decades, authorities used the island to banish anyone found suffering from Hansen's disease (leprosy). Fr. Damien gave his life comforting and ministering to the settlement's suffering souls; he died in 1889 of the same disease he had worked so long to treat.
