St. Martin de Porres

Martin grew up very poor in Peru in the sixteenth century. He became a brother in the Dominican monastery. He took care of animals as well as the cooking and manual labor. Everyone in the city loved him because of his kindness, especially to the poor. He saved novices from getting in trouble and took care of the sick and the poor.
