Just leave it alone. He did great things and if he is responsible for these acts, so be it. We will all find out sooner or later, so there is no reason for the negative posts.

My maiden name is Joyce Takamoto. Is this the same Audry Toguchi who taught Ewa Elementary School?
If so you are my God Mother and was present at my baptismal in 1961 at the Ewa Catholic Church. I left Hawaii in 1962 shortly after graduating from Waipahu High School.
There were two teachers who greatly influenced my life and one of whom was a Mrs. Toguchi who is mentioned in my autobiography.
If so I would like to send her a copy of my handwritten autobiography written for a college course about 20 years ago.
The Mrs. Toguchi I recall always had a twinkle in her eyes, an extremely calm rapor, accepting of everyone for who they were. Everyone in her presence felt at ease and made to feel good about themselves. Only such a person like her could be so deserving.
I would very much like to contact her to convey my gratitude for the impression she left within me that gave me strength throughout my difficult times.
Her smile and twinkle in her eyes as my biography states, seems to be the same.
Does anyone know???

Father Damien provided a model that influence and should continue to influence, the caring and unfearing treatment of AIDS patients and the destitute ill, in the same way that Mother Teresa did. Gentle touch and warmth. So important. May it influence healers and families alike.

I wouldn't believe anything the Catholic Religion sanctions, or for any reason. That is the one religion that is not even Christian, or ever has been.
It's sole purpose is to become god of it's domain, and make it's Catholics submissive to it's lies.
God has already judged all Catholics, they will never be allowed in heaven, they all love the lie, and tell lies themselves.

The canonization of Fr. Damien is a big deal for Hawaii Catholics and Catholics around the word.

For an outsider looking in, our customs must seem strange, but it is based on centuries of custom and practice. Sainthood is our way of celebrating our Catholic heros, who put God and service to his fellow man before himself. I'm sure Fr. Damien wasn't thinking about whether he'd become a saint when he ministered to and cared for people with Hansen's disease. There are very few people who have the faith and commitment to service that Fr. Damien had--I am happy that he also happened to be Catholic.

The miracle by St. Damien is a matter of faith, not science.

Anyone who has every been in presence of Audry Toguchi will tell you she is VOID of any prejudice, discriminiation, or malice. She is of Hawaiin decent, loving, kind and filled with compassion for all mankind irregardless of race, religion or culture. She as far as I know never wore makeup, or expensive attire and always, always, fair and loving to ALL OF HER STUDENTS, friends and family. She never have and is not capapble of putting herself above anyone. Those students especially having difficulty will vouch for her. It took almost 10 years to determine whether it was a ,miracle or not by the vatican and doctors. I see miracles in a newborn child, animal, stars, and all living things each and every day. Till this day and forever, she is the most humblest giving person. Please, let us not judge so ruthlessly and with vengence without knowing for isn't that where hatred and blind self-righteousness are born?

It's all a ruse by this delusional woman, who was undergoing radiation treatment at the same time she claimed a "miracle"! She was probably bought off by the Vatican to say such nonsense so that they (Vatican) can capitalize on a windfall media propaganda and the opportunity to make more "miracles" at the same time.
The only miracle is the amount of $$$MONEY$$ flowing into the Vatican's coffers! And those stupid followers...all blinded by such brain-washed religious dogma, being led by the nose like some drunken beast, to be pulled any which way the Church so desires!
All religious are for fools too stupid and lazy to think for themselves, not knowing their spiritual potential goes far beyond any god or church is capable of doing so!

Still, why does she still believe some "miracle" is responsible, when will she and other humans realize the true knowledge and power that lies within each rather than some delusional asperation "it" lies somewhere else, like believing in such foolishness as god?
These are the biggest lies of them all, religions are degenerative activities promoted by power-lustful individuals that live as human parasites at the expense of equally ignorant sheep humans!
All those believing in religions are fools, because they are too lazy to think for themselves and are led by the noses to be pulled any which way the clergy decides to do so!
Audry does not know if it is or why it happened. Nevertheless, she is greatful to Father Damien because that is who she prayed to and is happy for HIS success not her own. Her previous generation afflicted with leprosy and her heart has been full of gratitude for the loving care. She and her husband and his family worked very hard never complaining. But always contributing their energy to the community. Yes, the power and answer does lie within each of us and I ponder and wonder where it came from? Some call it, god, some call it the source, and I do believe we are all connected if only we can work together without malice. All we can do is seek out all truths in life with an empathetic open heart and mind.

Many have called you the EVIL haole DEVIL of Waianae. The lord remembers all the evil things you have done and said in your lifetime. He remembers the innocent people you have stepped on and disrespected. When that day comes and you are before the lord he will look at your record of deciet and lies you have committed on earth and pass judgement on you. Be prepared to spend internity with your brother the DEVIL.

Our lord and savior does not seperate his followers by race or status. You on the other do and the proof is in many of your posted comments. You are a prime example of what our lord warns us to beware of. Your day will come when you must asnwer to all the bad and evil things you have done. You had many chances to redeem yourself but it is to late Satan has evaded your body and soul and you are doomed to spend eternity in hell.
