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.

    my grandmother prayed daily to our dearest saint and when she died left me with her treasured icon. I have kept it near me for many years. Now unemployment has forced me to consider selling the thing I value most from her - but i have to survive so any offers no matter how small would be appreciated - I have to sell him.
    ps her maiden name was martin

    Dearest Saint Martin,
    Please ask Our Lord to intercede for my friend 'L' who is expecting results for a brain scan.
    Dearest Saint Martin, please let the scan results results show her medical contrition is harmless, benign and in a process of healing.
    Please Lord, breath you healing light into her body and heal her.

    Thank you,

    St. Martin I prayed and asked you to intercede for my cat Natasha on Saturday and Sunday when she seriously ill on Saturday morning. Thank you for answering my prayers so quickly especially when it seemed she was going to die. Natasha is much, much, much better two days later. I thank you St. Martin. I love you. Thank you for healing my cat through Christ Jesus. I know Natasha will have to die eventually, but you answered my prayer to have her around for a while longer. I promise to be more faithful, to be charitable to others, and to receive the sacraments regularly.

    When I was 2 years old, I almost died from and overdose of penicillin. My parents went to the Cloistered Nuns and the Cappuchian priests for prayers for me. They were given a novena to be said to Blessed Martin de Porres as he was not yet canonized as saint yet. After praying the novena to him for 9 days, I had a miraculous recovery on the 10th day. That was in 1952.I am now almost 60 years old and am 3 year Cancer survivor.

    My mom would pray to Saint Martin when we were little for our health, since we didn't have insurance. Now my mom prays for her grandson that has asthma.

    Dear Friends,
    To all whom requesting Prayers,God will heal everyone according to my prophecy I hard this night.

    Only things you have to do,it's sharing the small you have with poor people like St.Martin did.
    Then,you will receive your healing from God after helping poor.
    I believe one of you will do that today!
