St. Devasahayam | Indian Catholic Art


Shipping to United States: $3.00

St. Devasahayam is the first Hindu convert and Indian layman to be canonized in the Roman Catholic Church.

His conversion did not go well with the heads of the Hindu leadership. False charges of treason and espionage were brought against him and he was relieved of his post in the royal administration. In addition, St. Devasahayam insisted on the equality of all people despite caste differences, which made him hated by the higher classes.

The Vatican has honored this Saint’s commitment to recognize the inherent equality of all people by dropping the surname “Pillai” upon his canonization, as it was a name that tied him to his caste status.

Through his witness, we can be inspired to recognize Christ in our midst and honor the equal dignity of all people.
