November 3 – St. Martin de Porres

If you’ve never read about St Martin de Porres, carve out time this November.

St Martin de Porres is the patron saint of Peru, those of mixed races, and barbers and surgeons. Abandoned by his father, he longed to become a priest. He spent a few years training with a barber/surgeon. Martin longed to join a religious order, but Peruvian law prevented him from becoming a full member, due to his mixed race status.

Martin joined the Domincans as a servant boy, and worked his way up to church officer. Eventually, he was allowed to become a Domincan lay brother, helping to care for the sick.

His story of kindness, compassion and perseverance is one I love sharing with my children, over and over again.
