Pope Saint Martin I Comments

Martin I lay too sick to fight on a couch in front of the altar when the soldiers burst into the Lateran basilica. He had come to the church when he heard the soldiers had landed. But the thought of kidnapping a sick pope from the house of God didn't stop the soldiers from grabbing him and hustling him down to their ship. Elected pope in 649, Martin I had gotten in trouble for refusing to condone silence in the face of wrong. At that time ... Continue Reading

    Dear Pope Saint,

    Kindly transfer your faith and fortitude to the current Pope to fight the heresies being propagated by the powerful and the wealthy in America and the western world. Enlighten the Catholic Church to condemn and in True faith reject the laws made by these men on Abortion, Contraception, same sex marriage etc. Fill the religious with your spirit that they will tirelessly work for Christ and become martyrs in rooting out these evils from the society. Let the spirit of the Church be revived by uniting themselves in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

    The outline of St. Pope Martin I'st gives a glaring example how trends of "we; the people and body of the church" can display horrific behaviors towards our own. To find these deplorable contrasts of the Word of God, all we need to look at are our own churches, and the "clicks" within them, or the diocese hierarchy playing favorites to the main contributors, who in turn play master of operations within each and every church we call Catholic, often for their own gain or to contribute and/or condemn those of less fortune. I'm not preaching against the church made of the direct decadency of Christ (the Roman Catholic Church), rather; begging those participating in these iniquities to see the light, making for a church that acts as it should, in line with the teachings of the Lord.

    Dear Pope St. Martin 1st, admirable for the strength, courage and constancy of your fight for truth, pray for us. We Christians, who are pilgrims on earth, much is expected of us too, in our daily life to be true witnesses of our Faith, Pray for us dear saint, pray for all suffering children, who have no hope of living a normal life. Only a heavenly healing and a medical cure can free them of untold suffering....epileptic fits, speech and pervasive learning difficulties, and all sorts of unusual brain activity. Please help us with your special intercession on your feast day. I believe that God will answer our prayers. It is with this faith that I ask and implore your saintly intercession. Amen.,

    May Our Lord grant us catholics who live in these indifferent days the same Grace He gave St Martin I, so as to live faithful to His call.

    Heroic, admirable, but scary. Sometimes it seems this life is so insignificant in the scheme of eternity that all believers are destined to suffer unbelievable pain of one kind or another, just as Jesus did. The Evangelicals believe that God's glory and Blessings are manifested here and in the afterlife, so they expect good things on this earth. As Catholics it seems at times like we should shun earthly comforts and embrace violent pain and suffering. What do you think?

    I'm very curious as to who writes these as they always seem to put "corn" in as a staple food -yet corn is native to North America. I doubt anyone in Europe or any part of the Old World had corn in the 600's.

    What an inspirational message to us all, especially in these times. Pope Saint Martin I, pray for us, that we may have the courage to stand up for what is right and to defend our Faith at all cost.

    Heroes of God. Worth emulating. I am sure he is now having a ball in our Father's kingdom.
