St. Martin de Porres Comments

St. Martin de Porres was born at Lima, Peru, in 1579. His father was a Spanish gentleman and his mother a coloured freed-woman from Panama. At fifteen, he became a lay brother at the Dominican Friary at Lima and spent his whole life there-as a barber, farm laborer, almoner, and infirmarian among other things. Martin had a great desire to go off to some foreign mission and thus earn the palm of martyrdom. However, since this was not possible, ... Continue Reading

    My mum always prayed to St Matin de Porres as she was given a picture of this saint by her brother who was a priest.

    My eldest sister had Tuberculosis when she was at school and it was very contagious therefore all in the family were not well and my mum kept praying to St Matin de Porres.

    He heard my mum's prayer and we were healed completely. Today when I spoke to my mum over the phone she asked me to write this as a thanks giving to St Martin de Porres. Thank you Lord for giving us St Martin de Porres.

    My grandmother, bless her loving soul, had great devotion to St. Martin de Porres and I have always known about him but not his great devotions. When my daughter Michele Ann was in hospital at a young age, I was not allowed to visit her because of risk of infection. I would visit from outside her room, looking through a window. One day she told me of a "doctor" who had come to her room; he was wearing dark clothing and spoke to her, telling her not to be afraid and to keep on loving God and her parents. Within 24 hours she was relieved of her illness and was allowed to come home. I was convinced then, and am still sure, that it was St. Martin de Porres who visited her. Thank you, Lord, for sending St. Martin to give her solace.

    St. Martin, I've always known of you, but just know learned how miraculous and inspirational you truly are. I anxiously plead with you to give my husband and I our own healthy baby. It's been a long and hard road, and we just want to grow our family. I trust you can help us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
