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

    St. Martin de Porres has done so many miracles for me and family members. Every so often I send a mass in thanksgiving, as I will be forever thankful for his intervention.

    Last week I had a dream that I was helping tidy up a storage room of a huge church. In my dream, I found a statue which was very familiar to me. Familiar in a sense that I owned one when I was in university. I bought a two inches statue around 30years ago, from a church religious shop, only because it was so cute. Very tiny but was holding a broom. The hair or the brush of the broom was from that of a real one. I didn't even know that time that it was St Martin de Pores. Over the years, I've learned more about him but I never considered invoking him. But why did he come to me in my dream, in the form of that tiny statue I used to have? There must be a message! I started reading more about him and realized, he's a God-sent. He wants to be in my life. He wants to help me. Thank you God. Thank you St Martin.

    St. Martin de Porres, healer and protector of the sick. Protect my son at all times. He has great faith and truly believes he is getting healed through your intercession. Keep him away from danger especially from all his food allergies. May he always be diligent with his food intake to avoid severe reactions. In Jesus' name.

    I have carried a statue of St Martin de Porres for nearly 30 years. It was given to me from a old lady that I would take of at the age of 10. I would help her with anything, even bathing her as she struggled with everything. I have taken this statue all over England & all over Germany. I always asked question about St Martin dr Porres. I got a message today on my Facebook about St Martin de Porres, I could not believe it at all. Plus it is my birthday today, & it was his St day yesterday. I pray every single day to St Martin de Porres to help me with my situation, as he said "ask & you shall receive". I showed my husband that was on my Facebook, he said its a sign that he is listening to me & he knows that life is very hard for me. I know now that I have had a sign from St Martin de Porres that he has spoken on my behalf to are Lord & savour Jesus Christ. I am so emotional at the moment. If my prayers are answered I will go to Peru & help everybody that I can. Plus I will let everybody know what St Martin de Porres has done for me in granting my wish.

    My (adopted) nephew, Michael, who has been sick for sometime now, was recently helped by a Dominican friar. They met by a very strange and unusual circumstance. This friar is of mixed blood, as is Michael, and plans to see Michael every week as necessary. I can't believe what "fate" has caused here, but I am very appreciative of what is happening now, not only for Michael, but for the Dominican friar as well. I told Michael, over the years that I've known him, about the sanctity of St. Martin de Porres. And now a Dominican friar, of mixed blood, is now offering to help him with his illnesses. What can I say but "THANK YOU, St. Martin for helping me to care for my nephew, Michael."

    We were trying to figure out who my patron saint was. I was hit in Iraq and I couldn't remember.
    So i started looking it up. I found St. Martin De Porres, which was the saint of mixed people. That made since to me since that is what I am. Plus my mother in law said she thought it started with an m. This was a lot of help.
