Don’t you love learning about the saints? All of them are so different, so unexpected, so surprising.

Here’s a slave, who goes to Mass every morning, becomes a hairdresser in New York City, counsels rich ladies about their spiritual lives as he does their hair, ends up being granted his freedom, makes a lot of money and uses it to help the poor.

A devout Catholic, he never misses the opportunity to share his faith with others, and witnesses with his words and actions in a professional, dignified and charitable way.

Ven Pierre Toussaint pray for us.

God, give us the grace to imitate Ven Pierre Toussaint.
