Who is Saint Damien?

Every now and again a movie capably captures the personality of a person and the drama of his life.  Moloka'i: The Story of the Father Damien is such a movie.

If you have not yet seen it, I highly recommend you watch it.  And if you have seen it, I highly recommend that you watch it again, especially today as celebrate the Memorial of Saint Damien.

To whet your appetite, here is the trailer (the embed feature seems not to be working at the moment).

You can even watch the movie on YouTube, broken down into several short segments, beginning with this video.
