November 3 - St. Martin of Porres

Martin did not overcome all the barriers imposed by racism, poverty, being abandoned by his father, and the problems of violence and confrontation of his time, but armed himself instead with love, truth, patience, humility and compassion. Instead of attacking, he put himself at the service of everyone. When he died his body was taken to the grave by bishops and the nobility and his fame in Lima was such that the people considered Martin a saint long before he was canonized.
