Vultus Christi- Father Damien- A Priest Adorer

Posted on May 9, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Blessed Damien de Veuster, SS.CC.
A Priest–Icon of the Suffering Christ
The saints, all of them, are living illustrations of the power of the Holy Spirit. The saints are the masterpieces of the Divine Iconographer who, in every age, writes in souls the whole mystery of Christ. The Holy Spirit is the Finger of God’s Right Hand tracing on hearts of flesh the likeness of the Heart of Jesus. In Blessed Damian of Molokai the Church sets before us a priest fashioned by the Holy Spirit in a special way into the image of the suffering Christ, “despised and rejected by man, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief” (Is 53:3).
