St Martin de Porres

St. Martin de Porres is one of my favorite religious people because he was one of the very first people to establish a hospital for animals. His sister helped him to care for them, and St Martin is even known to have brought a dead dog back to life. When the mice were in trouble for eating the priestly vestments, St. Martin did not kill them, but fed them so they would not be hungry. And he taught all the animals to eat together without fighting. I think that anyone who has such feelings for animals is very extraordinary and wonderful, and just my kind of person and saint!
