Martin de Porres: A Saint Of The Americas (15 Days of Prayer)

Saint Martin de Porres, a saint for all people and all times, has an especially relevant message for contemporary Christians. In Martin de Porres, A Saint of the Americas, the reader will discover the cruelty of the time during which Saint Martin lived, a time marked by racism and the destruction of culture, and Martin's radical, simple, and peaceful responses to those conditions. Yet Saint Martin, a model for dealing with peace and social justice issues, is also a model of finding holiness in the little things of life.

A man of mixed blood and illegitimate birth, Martin lived his life blending the best of other spiritual icons: the apostolic zeal of Dominic, the simplicity and love of creation of Francis, the endless compassion for the sick and dying of Teresa of Calcutta.

Martin was neither a preacher nor a writer. His greatness lies in the testimony of his "little way" of life: simple kindnesses, faithfulness in prayer, and his ability to turn suffering and oppression into an encounter with God.
