Today we celebrate the life of St. Peter Claver, a Jesuit Saint. He was encouraged by St. Alphonsus Rodriguez to serve in the New World. Peter was met by the most horrific conditions among the black slaves whom he nursed with solicitude. He considered himself the “slave of the black slaves for all time,” and he took to heart the words of St. Alphonsus who encouraged him, “Look for God in all men and serve them as images of Him.” Peter baptized over 300,000 people in Cartagena.
