Black Americans on the road to sainthood: Pierre Toussaint – From slave to sainthood

During the month of January we celebrate the feast of the Epiphany, the arrival of the Magi to pay homage to “the king of kings.” The Psalm for this day’s liturgy tells us that this king will “govern [the] people with justice” (Ps. 72:2) and that as a ruler, this king “rescues the poor when they cry out, the oppressed who have no one to help. He shows pity to the needy and the poor and saves the lives of the poor” (Ps. 72:12-13).
