St. Martin De Porres Apostle of Charity

The mulatto friend of St. Rose of Lima, he became a Dominican lay brother at 15 and spent his life (died at 61) helping those in need. Many great anecdotes telling how he raised the dead, multiplied food, cured the sick, healed wounded animals, visited those in need through bilocation, did extreme penance and gained the name of Apostle of Charity, patron of social justice, father of the sick and poor and helper in hopeless cases. The Dominican Order's official biography of him. Truly inspiring! 254pp
