Video Glimpse into Father Damien of Molokai

In keeping with World Leprosy Week, I post this video narrated by Max Lucado - a glimpse into the life of Father Damien of Molokai. 

And in case you missed the news, I'm giving away a copy of Healing Water. See below.

  Linda Andersen hosted me over at her blog, A Writer's Playground. Comment there for a chance to win Healing Water, historical fiction that takes place in Hawaii's leprosy settlement.  Deadline is Saturday at midnight.


  1. Father Damien is one of my heroes. Such a brave and selfless man.

  2. Great to hear from you Faith. And also to discover your blog. I look forward to reading it when I get some time this evening.

    Yes, Father Damien is one of my heroes too. Please enter the book drawing over at A Writer's Playground. That's where the giveaway is.

    Good luck!

  3. That was so interesting, I had forgotten things about Father Damien since I read Father Damien the Leper (which was way before computers and YouTube for information, thanks heavens for progress).

    Father Damien was indeed a hero.

  4. Yes, Alex - so much great info out there now. I love this short clip.

  5. Joyce,
    Thanks for posting more about leprosy and Father Damien and linking to my blog. You're terrific.

  6. I figured it's a week long event and dear Healing Water gets precious little attention.

    The same is true of leprosy. Thanks for motivating me, Linda.
