Have you heard of Petrus Claver?

12 02 2007

Here’s an article on a Christian who lived in the 17th century and willingly suffered to serve “the least of these”.  He did a lot to help slaves (mostly from South Africa).  He converted nearly 300,000 people to Christianity.  You should read it.  His name was
Petrus Claver, aethiopum semper servus.  (FYI, that translates to “Pedro Claver, forever a servant to blacks”.)

Wow – that’s incredible! I had not heard of this guy before. Christianity has had a lot of unsung heroes from the past…
