"O God, who are glorified in the Bishop Saint Martin both by his life and death, make new, we pray, the wonders of your grace in our hearts, that neither death nor life may separate us from your love. Through our Lord Jesus Christ..."Martin was a soldier of the Roman legions. One night on guard, he split his cloak and gave it to a beggar. Later he dreamed that the beggar was Christ, and later gave up fighting to become a monk. Martin was claimed by Tours to become bishop, and died in A.D. 397.
