Call to action in the struggle against slavery

Call to action in the struggle against slavery

Today is the feast of St. Peter Claver, the saint who ministered to slaves from West Africa in Cartagena, Columbia, during the 1600’s.

In Luke 4:18, Jesus indicated that his mission included releasing those held captive.  As disciples of Jesus, then, we are also called to work on behalf of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved and trafficked in our own age.  To learn more and to take action, follow this link http://www.castla.org/homepage for information about the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking.
