Saint Martin de Porres
Feast Day -- November 3
Saint Martin was born in Lima, Peru. His father was Spanish, and his mother was a freed black slave. Martin became a Dominican brother, and spent his life doing good works. He went throughout Lima, caring for the sick and poor. He was a blessing to all he met. Because he was meek and pure of heart, he saw that the simplest work honored God if it served others. He would ask for donations for the poor, as well. Martin lived the Beatitudes his whole life.
Patron of mixed race people, innkeepers, and public schools. Saint Martin's sister ran a hospice where Martin often took sick people.
Dear God, may we be inspired to care foe the sick through Saint Martin's example. Amen.
