Aged 33, Fr Damien de Veuster left his mission parish to work among the lepers of Hawaii. He died there of leprosy aged only 49. Like Christ himself, he became rejected for the rejected, a leper for the lepers: something rare in a world that wants to eliminate suffering. St Damien of Molokai was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.
