How the Vatican Investigated a Modern Miracle at a Leprosy Settlement in Hawaii

Thanks for sharing. It's nice to see a positive article for once.

In case anyone is interested here is a link to a movie made in 1999 about Damien's life. The production company seems to be a smaller one, but they managed to cast some pretty well known actors. The movie itself is very positive and is probably one of the better ones about a Catholic saint I have ever seen.



P.S. Interestingly Vox the movie touches on Damien's desire for confession with a scene that shows the local Bishop (played by Leo McKern) stubbornly going out in a boat to meet Damien and having him confess in French when the captain of the ship refuses to let Damien board. The movie does not take the opportunity to accuse Damien of an illicit relationship with a women, but simply has Damien confess that he has had "impure thoughts." The Bishop seems to concur with your scruples diagnoses and tells Damien to treat himself with the same charity that he affords others, while encouraging him to continue his work.

The quality isn't that great because it's youtube, but I would encourage anyone to watch it if they have the time. It's certainly better then most christian themed movies you see these days.
