Born in Peru in 1579, he died at age sixty. His life combined the apostolic zeal of Saint Dominic, the simple love for creation of Saint Francis and the endless compassion for the poor and sick of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. In 1962, he became one of the few saints canonized by Pope John XXIII. Saint Martin did not write any books or preach any sermons. His life was his preaching. He initiated a new expression of the spiritual life radical, simple and holy. He had the gift of spontaneous joy and a capacity for turning the suffering and oppression of the poor into an encounter with God. For that he is known today as the patron saint of social justice. The author is well imbued with the spirit of Martin de Porres as a fellow Dominican and as a student who lived in the area where Martin grew up and ministered in Peru. As he states in the Introduction to this book, I have spent many hours snooping around and praying in many of Martins secret hideouts! Each chapter concludes with pertinent reflection questions that can be used for group discussion or personal reflection. Come explore the life andspirituality of this poor friar from South America who now lives in the splendor of Gods kingdom. Anyone with a compassionate heart toward those oppressed by society will come to love and hold him in esteem.
