SAINT PETER CLAVER (9/9) . Watch the video at . Saint Peter CLaver could be considered one of the first members of the Black Lives Matter movement. He was born in Spain but was sent on mission to the Americas. When he arrived in Cartagena (now Columbia) he was appalled by the treatment of African slaves. . St Peter would care for the slaves from the moment the ships docked, and would continue to serve them in any way he could. Many other Europeans refused to enter his Masses because of his association with black people who were welcome in his churches. . Saint Peter Claver is the patron saint of African Americans and so we ask his prayers for all black people and all who are mistreated because of their race. Saint Peter Claver: Pray for us. . #catholic #church #prayer #Jesus #god #pray #prayer #reflection #meditation #gospel #bible #saint #feast #catholiceducation @rcwestminster @dowym #blm #blacklivesmatter #blmmovement
