Here’s a friendly and fun portrait of the beloved South American Saint, Martin de Porres. It honors the joyful disciple known for sharing God’s love with all of His creatures; from the mice in the kitchen to the sick far away (did you know Saint Martin had the divine gift of bilocation?). His feast day is November 3rd.
The companion prayer is a petition of both gratitude and hope, encouraging people of all ages and races to embrace the people and predicaments in their lives like Saint Martin did: with courage, humility and most of all, the compassion of Christ!
Prayer to Saint Martin:
Thank you for your bold example of Charity
towards all of God’s creation.
Please help me to live this virtue as you did,
by seeing the face of Jesus in everyone I meet.
Please pray that I carry my cross of life’s challenges with
humility and courage so that I, too,
may follow in the footsteps of Our Lord.
