SaintCast 58, Blessed Damien of Molokai

Play

We debut a new segment on the SaintCast, “Man on the Street” in Las Vegas, Nevada, asking ‘who is the patron saint of Las Vegas.’ The answers will surprise you.

We profile an incredible man, who gave his life so others would be comforted, Blessed Damien of Molokai. This selfless priest went to care for lepers on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, and eventually died of the disease.

On the ‘Saints of the Week’ segment we learn of several popes, including one who resigned his office, and was possibly relegated to a circle of hell by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri because of it. Sound bites of the pope in Brazil, and more on SaintCast #58.

Music on the episode. . .
