The Church May Do Some Bad, But it Also Does Some Good
Father Damien, a Catholic Priest, volunteered to help an island leper colony, saying "I make myself a leper to be with the lepers." There he turned shacks into painted houses, cultivated farms, and started schools. Doing so he contracted leprosy himself. He was canonized a saint in 2009.
