Father Damien And The Bells
Arthur and Elizabeth Sheehan
This next volume in the acclaimed Vision Books series of saints' lives for youth 9-15 years old is the story of the saintly Fr. Damien, who in 1872 went 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.
Arthur and Elizabeth Sheehan have both been teachers of children and contributing writers to various Christian journals. They are avid devotees of the life and work of the heroic Fr. Damien on the island of Molokai.
