Mahalo e Ke Akua!
The Diocese of Honolulu embraced its second saint today, St. Marianne Cope, the patron saint of outcasts, for her work throughout Hawaii and on the Kalaupapa Peninsula, where she cared for those suffering with Leprosy. Here is the Holy Father speaking on St. Marrianne Cope as exemplifying the best tradition of Catholic nursing sisters
In honor of her here is a clip of ʻThe Song of St. Marrianeʻ, composed using her own words in the 1800ʻs and with the help of some native hawaiian influence.
St. Marriane, Ora pro nobis!
