We conclude our brief sketch of the life of Fr. Saintourens by quoting from a 

homily given in 1955 by Fr. Edward L. Hughes, O.P., who was at that time 

Provincial of St. Albert’s Province (USA). The occasion was Holy Mass 

marking the 75th anniversary of the Foundation of the Dominican Nuns of 
the Perpetual Rosary. He said: 

“Fr. Damien was a humble man. He completely effaced himself and his own 

name in the propagation of the Perpetual Rosary. He must receive in the 

grave what he shrank from in life, recognition and tribute for his wonderful 

accomplishments in favor of devotion to the Mother of God.”
