St. Peter Claver.
The kids and I reflected on this loving, courageous saint numerous times in the past since he is in the third grade history book that we use (publisher is Seton).
He reminds me SO MUCH of Blessed Mother Teresa.
His feast day is today, September 9.
A couple of years ago, we added this book to our saint collection. (Found on Amazon, here.)
What a brave man this Jesuit priest was!! Walking the slave markets and entering the slave trade ships to clean, feed, and counsel the slaves.
