St. Martin of Tours (316-397)
The son of a pagan military officer, Martin was enrolled in the Roman army as a boy. After he shared his military cloak with a beggar, he saw a heavenly vision which led to his baptism. When he was released from service, he organized a community of monks, erected a monastery, and became Bishop of Tours.

Reflections from the Saints

Lord, if your people still need me, I am ready for the task; your will be done.
