Gerard’s Saint

Ever since I was a young boy I have had a special devotion to St Martin de Porres. This came about through my mother who was and remains a life long supporter of the Saint Martin de Porres aposulate in Dublin. As I got older I learned about his holy life of sacrifice, forgiving the guilty, comforting the sick, feeding clothing and giving medicine to the poor and needy. I am certain that his example influenced me in my onward journey within my Catholic faith, and life in general, to strive to put the needs of others before mine and gracefully accept the ups and downs of life by offering them up to the heavenly Father.
