Peter Claver, who’s memorial we celebrated yesterday was born in Spain in 1580. With the guidance of Saint Alphonsus, Peter answered God’s call upon his life, received ordination and went to the mission field of Columbia, South America. There, until his death on September 8, 1634, Peter gave relentless compassion, kindness and mercy to the African slaves.
God sent Peter Claver as a light of hope in the midst of dark despair in order to address the wordless pleas of slaves in horrible distress. Although he could not free them from captivity, he freed them from a sense of worthlessness and abandonment through his tireless love and healing presence of Christ.
