Pope Benedict has announced that Blessed Damien – the Leper Priest – will be declared Saint within the next year.  This follows the cure of a woman, in Hawaii, of cancer through her intercession with Bl. Damien. Eileen Good spoke to Fr. Eamon Alyward of the Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary and asked him about Fr. Damien and his life caring for lepers in Hawaii.
