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.

    St. Martin while browsing this web page I discovered you helped solve your sisters marriage problems. Please intercede to God the Father for the restoration of my marriage. My dearly departed mother had great devotion to you which she in turn passed on to me over 30 years ago and you never let either of us down. Please help me now. Thank you so much for all past favours.

    I love St. Martin De Porres and I have several biographies about. His reverence for the lives of all God's chidren and every creature of God is compassionate, sacred and humane.

    Dear St. Martin de Porres:
    You have been my family's saint for many many years. We've been as faithful and persistent as possible. I need to ask you for a certain miracle. I want a classical record contract (with Virgin Records) very soon, so that I can continue to serve God by praising Him, singing opera and ballet and playing guitar, bass and classical percussion in his glory. Whatever you bring me, I'll accept. La Amen.

    I had a dream about St Martin De Porres. When I awoke that morning I found myself repeating his name. I did not know of such a saint. I cannot remember every detail in my dream but I knew he was wearing a dark coat. I could not wait to check out who this great Saint was and I have been praying to him ever since. Praise to St Martin Des Porres forever in the presence of God.
