She detailed fighting with the thief for a few minutes before giving him the money in her purse in her blog. And as he tied her up so he could search for more money, she prayed out loud for him.

Born a slave in 1854, Daniel Rudd was owned by a Catholic family in Bardstown, Ky.

That upbringing, and his eventual emancipation and education, led Rudd to become a forward-thinking Catholic activist in America.

“In 1888, he said he believed he would live long enough to see a black man as president of the republic,” said Gary B. Agee, an adjunct professor of church history at the Anderson University School of Theology.
