Brother Martin worked in the infirmary at the monastery, and opened an orphanage and a hospital. He gave out food and supplies to people in the city. He cared for the slaves from Africa. Brother Martin loved all God’s creatures. Everyone loved Brother Martin. His heart was full of love for all people and all races. He felt that they were his brothers and sisters. People called him "Martin of Charity." His whole life had been a gift to others.


Saints are real-life heroes of faith who inspire us by their virtues to become more like Christ. In the Saints and Me! series, these beautifully illustrated early-reader books tell the real stories of saints that come to life and connect with today’s children aged 4 to 9.
