|November 3rd – Feast of St. Martin de Porres
St. Martin always preached, “Love every creature that you meet.”
So when he found sick animals, he saved them off the street.
Crunch! Crunch! Crunch!
You could hear him walking by,
Whether mice, cats, dogs, or donkeys: none he would deny.
Today is the last day to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a copy of Saints on the Go! along with three of the Shining Light Dolls featured in the book: Saint Martin de Porres, Saint Teresa of Calcutta, and Saint Padre Pio. You can enter the giveaway here!

Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
