Saintly Quote of the Day (2009年9月9日)

The saints owed their confidence in God that unalterable tranquility of soul, which procured their perpetual joy and peace, even in the midst of adversities.---ST. ALPHONSUS.

 

St. Peter Claver (+1654) would sign himself “Slave of the slaves for ever.”

We must speak to them with our hands before we try to speak to them with our lips.---ST. PETER CLAVER.

 

St. Peter Claver would insist that the slaves learn this prayer:

Jesus Christ, Son of God, you will be my father and my mother and all my good. I love you much. I am sorry for having sinned against you. I love you very much.

 

In thirty-eight years St. Peter Claver baptized some 300,000 people.
