"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Look Deeply For Dignity

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, November 3, 2017

Saint Martin de Porres (1579-1639) was a barbershop surgeon when he joined a Dominican monastery at age 15. Soon his success with medicinal herbs and miraculous healings earned him great fame as a healer. But Martin was famous for tending to small things, too. Once, he solved the monastery’s pest problem by nabbing a mouse and respectfully asking it to leave, along with its countless cousins. Recognizing the dignity in all God’s creatures is no small thing. How can we show others that we see their dignity?


November 3 – Miraculous Prayer to Saint Martin de Porres (1579-1639) to ask for urgent financial help

O BLESSED SAINT MARTIN DE PORRES, humble servant of the Lord,
who embraced faith with ardor,
and with charity and immense love
you filled the hearts of the needy,
of the most unfavored ones,
and were the consolation of souls and bodies,
taking great care of the sick
and working thousands of wonders and great miracles
so as to favor those who resorted to you asking for help;

I plead that you be my intercessor
and you help me with a miracle in my economy.
My great protector Saint Martin de Porres,
you who occupy a principal place in Glory,
who followed without doubt the steps of the Lord,
and you felt so much devotion and love for the Virgin Mary:
Speak to Them, ask Them for their valuable mediation,
tell Them what I suffer for my difficulties and burdens,
and implore Them to send me a solution
for my pains and necessities.

O charitable saint, saint of miracles,
I need to feel your powerful intercession:
I implore you with my heart in my hand,
and with all my hope and confidence,
that you make it possible
that this grave economic crisis,
through which my family is going through, depart from us at once.

Give me please, prodigious Martin,
what now is so lacking and which I so much need:
(ask with much faith what you need to obtain)
Grant me this miracle which I humbly ask you for,
dissipate from my home all lack and scarcity,
make it so my prayers and supplications
come before the Virgin and the Lord,
since from Them,
who are always filled with compassion and mercy,
I know I can hope for all.
With the same faith and hope I ask
that you bring me the spirit of charity and dedication
so that I lovingly serve God,
and that I know how to do good for my brethen,
just as many times you have done.

Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Pray 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys and 3 Glorias
