Pagel., POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 17, 2014 Molinari (Continued from Kalawao on the eastern end of the Kalaupapa peninsula on the islarid of Molokai. Bishop Louis D6sir6 Maigret, the Vicar Apostolic of the Honolulu diocese, be- lieved that the lepers at least needed a Catholic priest to assist them, he re- alized that this assignment could become a death sen- tence, therefore, he did not want to send any one person "in the name of obedience". Four priests volunteered to go. The bishop's plan was for the volunteers to take turns assisting the inhabitants. Father Damien was the first priest to volunteer and, on May 10, 1873, he arrived at the secluded settlement at Kalaupapa, where Bishop Maigret presented him to the 816 lepers living there. Damien's first course of ac- tion was to build a church and established the Parish of Saint Philomena. His role was not limited to being a religious priest. He dressed ulcers, built a reservoir, built homes and furniture. Made coffins, dug graves, built chapels, roads and helped organize farms. The King of Hawaii didn't plan the settlement to be in chaos but he neglected to provide desperately needed resources. Fr. Damien changed an impossible situ- ation into a colony of life. He restored faith in his battered and neglected flock. He showed them that despite what the outside world told them, they were precious in the eyes of God. He taught them to believe in God and showed them that by his genuine acts of charity there was purpose in their lives. He restored personal STATEMENT OF OWNERSHIP MANAGEMENT AND CIRCULATION 1. A.

Page 6) pride and dignity among so many who had given up hope. In December 1884 while preparing to bathe, Damien inadvertently put his foot into scalding water, causing his skin to blister. He felt nothing. Damien had con- tracted leprosy. Despite this discovery, he worked vigor- ously to build as many homes as he could and planned for the continuation of the programs he created after he was gone. He has- tened to complete his many building projects, enlarged his orphanages, and orga- nized his work, Help came from four strangers who came to Kalaupapa to help the ailing missionary: a priest, a soldier, a male nurse, and a Religious Sister. Father Damien died of lep- rosy at 8:00 AM on April 15, 1889, at the age of 49. The next day', after Mass by Fa- ther Moellers at St. Philomena's, the whole sett!ement followed the fu- neral cort6ge to the cem- etery where Damien was laid to rest under the same pandanus tree where he first slept upon his arrival on Molokai. In 1936, at the request of King Leopoldo Ill of Belgium and the Belgian govern- ment, Damien's body was returned to Belgium and now rests in Leuven. After his Beatification, the remains of his right hand were returned to Hawaii and re-interred in his original grave site. He was canonized on October 1, 2009 by Pope Benedict XVI. Saint Damien is the patron of those with leprosy and the State of Hawaii. His feast day is celebrated on October 11th.

The Patriots organization had achieved the feat on 65 previous occa- 37 sions, their most versus any NFL op- ponent. So when the game ended 37-22 in Orchard Park, NY last Sunday afternoon, was it any real surprise which team had come out on top between the Patriots and Buffalo Bills? Make it 23 out of 25 and 66 head-to- head wins. "I'm not sure really, historically," said Brady who threw four touchdown passes in the game. "I have a lot of respect for this team. They play hard every time we play them. I think we just somehow come out on the win- ning end." Come on Tom, just say it,-you own the Bills. Sure, Terry Pegula is the new le- gal owner of the Buffalo franchise, but on Sunday at a sold-out Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Patriots once again proved that they are Chairmen of this rivalry and the AFC East. New England took control of the game in a span of four minutes at the close of the first half and start of the second. The game was tied at 7 apiece before two Stephen Gostkowski field goals gave the Patriots a 13- 7 lead at the half. Then Brady and the of- fense literally ripped the game from Buffalo's grasp when he connected with wide receiver Brian Tyms on a 43-yard touchdown. Both Tyms and Buffalo cornerback Stephon Gilmore came down with the ball, but Tyms just wanted it more. "It's frustrating," said Bills tight end Scott Chandler, who continued to burn the Patri- ots in a losing effort, finishing the game with 105 yards on six receptions. "They've been the top dog in our division since the division was formed." The continued resurgence of the Patriots offense seems to coincide with tight end Rob Gronkowski's return to elite form and as Brady has looked more consistently to tar- gets other than Julian Edelman. Sure Edelman led the team with nine receptions on Sunday, but Brandon LaFell stole the show hauling in two touchdown passes and looks primed to be a playmaker go- ing forward. His 18-yard catch and run through the Bills de- fense with 8:42 to play in the 22 game virtually sealed the win for New England. Defensively, the Patriots collected five sacks of Bills quarterback Kyle Orton and forced three turnovers. Chandler Jones applied constant pressure while Rob Ninkovich led the unit with 3 sacks. Ja~e Collins Picked off an ill-advised Kyle Orton pass in the second quarter. It was the second year linebackers first in regular season action, having previously recorded his first pro inter- ception in last January's divisional playoff win versus the Indianapolis Colts. The game did come at a cost for the Patri- ots as linebacker-defensive signal caller Jerod Mayo and running back Stevan Ridley both were lost for the remainder of the 2014 sea- son with leg injuries. The offensive line took a hit with injuries to rookie center Bryan Stork and left guard Dan Connolly, Neither player returned to the game with Connolly suffering what the team called a head injury. The offensive line had played, well the past two games, but faltered once Connolly went down, allowing the Buffalo front to frequently pressure Brady. "We're just going to have to get contribu- tions from other guys -- some at the line- backer position and some at other positions as well," said Bill Belichick when asked about the loss of Mayo. "We'll see how it all comes together." We're moving on to the Jets ... L'Anno Bello (Continued from Page 4) than sipping on a pumpkin spice hot chocolate on a brisk day. I believe that the fairy tales had it correct when they identified pumpkin as a magical food. What other in- gredient speaks so much to the delight and abundance that autumn brings? From its place in American folklore to the savory zucca dishes in Italian restaurants, pump- kin is here to stay as long as people share a zest for chang- ing leaf colors and commu- nal holidays. Like the Charlie Brown cartoon, I eagerly await the arrival of pump- kins every fall, for they truly add zest to the season. So sip your pumpkin latte, or eat your pumpkin pie, or carve up a jack-o-lantern. Enjoy these orange beauties while they are in season, and be sure to count the many blessings of autumn.
