St. Martin de Tours Patron Saint
St. Martin of Tours was a Roman soldier serving in Gaul
during the fourth century. He converted to Christianity
and refused to fight in battle because he was a "soldier
of Christ" first and foremost.
St. Martin is the patron saint of many causes:
* Against poverty
* Against alcoholism
* Bahrija, Malta
* Beli Manastir
* Buenos Aires
* Foiano della Chiana
* Diocese of Mainz
* Pontifical Swiss Guards
* Reformed alcoholics
* Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart
* Wine growers
* Wine makers
Many Christian who have St. Martin of Tours as a patron
saint wear a St. Martin medal or a St. Martin charm,
praying for his intercession in their lives. They ask
St. Martin to strengthen their faith and their resolve
to live a life as a "soldier of Christ".
Prayers to St. Martin de Tours
Blessed Saint Martin of Tours, You were born under pagan
ways but since your childhood you were chosen to be
a Prince of the Church and, as Bishop of Tours, many
souls were redeemed and liberated from the satanic forces
through your prayers, austerities and blessings.
* Oh Saint Martin, who cut your own cloak to clothe
Our Lord disguised as a beggar. We humbly ask for you
intercession before Our Lord Jesus Christ and help us
to be worthy of the grace and mercy of the Holy Ghost
that lead us from darkness to light into the eternal
kingdom, forever and ever. Amen.
* Dear well-beloved Saint Martin, you were first a soldier
like your father. Converted to the Church, you became
a soldier of Christ, a priest and then a Bishop of Tours.
Lover of the poor, and model for pagans and Christians
alike, protect our soldiers at all times. Make them
strong, just, and charitable, always aiming at establishing
peace on earth. Amen.
* Lord, if your people still have need of my services,
I will not avoid the toil. Your will be done. I have
fought the good fight long enough. Yet if you bid me
continue to hold the battle line in defense of your
camp, I will never beg to be excused from failing strength.
I will do the work you entrust to me. While you command,
I will fight beneath your banner. Amen
