Close ups!

Sorry, didn't have much time to post last time...or enough pictures. Got more this time!
BTW, the exhibit will be at the Cathedral gallery until the end of the month (which means there's one week left). Stop by if you've got time! The gallery is usually open Tuesdays and Fridays after the noon Mass, and after Sunday Masses.

First off, a closer view of Father Damien's nice handwriting on some of the letters he wrote. His walking stick is just behind...

Father Damien wasn't just a caretaker of his flock's spiritual needs, he was also their carpenter, doctor, and friend.

Pipe (The face is a part of the pipe, the part behind is it's case)

Father Damien was already sick by the time Mother Marianne had come to Hawaii, but it's really neat when two saints know each other and are friends.

Best for last! Father Damien's glasses.

I'll try to post more later, but many apologies if it turns out to be much, much later...

Items of a soon to be Saint

Sorry for not used to not using the computer for Lent. :P

Father Damien's feast day was last week and we had an exhibit at the Cathedral! Click to enlarge...

Some letters, birth certificate, bills (all with really, really nice handrwiting!), his walking stick, some tools, and his pipe.

Funeral vestment, chalice, some items for Mass, and a tool for making the hosts for Mass.

...and my little brother's favorite, Father Damien's vestment for Mass. My brother stood in front of it and pretended to wear it! :-)
