Title: VISION BOOKS: FATHER DAMIEN AND THE BELLS
Description:
The Vision Books for youth nine to fifteen years old are one of the most popular and well-written series of saints' lives ever produced for young people. Arthur and Elizabeth Sheehan tell the story of the saintly Fr. Damien, who in 1872 was sent to the island of Molokai, where lepers had been exiled to live in miserable surroundings. Damien earned the trust of the lepers, and his appeals for help resonated throughout the world. He spent his life caring for all the needs of the outcast lepers and even after Damien himself contracted leprosy, he carried on working for his "fellow lepers" to the end. Illustrated. 168 pages
