SAINT MARTIN DE PORRES
For 9 days in a row, say: Saint Martin de Porres, your concern and charity embraced not only your needy brethren, but also the animals of the field. You are a splendid example of charity; we thank and praise you. From above, hear the requests of your needy brethern. (Mention your request here...) By modelling our lives after yours, and imitating your virtues, may we live content knowing that God has looked favourably upon us. Because this is so, we can accept our burdens with strength and courage in order to follow in the footsteps of our Lord and the Blessed Mother. May we reach the Kingdom of Heaven through the intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
