I had never heard the story of this saint, and found it interesting that he ministered to the slaves and lepers in the early colonial times. I really think his story has much more gravitas and color than the site lends to it. I mean, this Jesuit had to stand up to the wealthy patrons of his church to extend the kindnesses he did, which was fraught with drama and intrigue. It deserves a better telling than the 2 dimensional portrayal he gets in this church - but what a beautiful building and what a legacy!
