Martin of Tours. Bishop.
Feastday 11th November.
He lived between 316-387 A.D. having been born to pagan parents in a
Roman province in modern day Hungary; he served as a soldier.
He was baptised at around the age of 18. Preferring to serve Christ
rather than the army he was eventually discharged and became a disciple
of Hilary of Poitiers.
Martin established a monastery in France eventually becoming a Bishop,
he ministered to the poor and preached throughout the countryside.
Tradition tells that Martin gave up half his cloak
to a naked beggar, that evening he dreamt that Christ himself was
wearing the cloak.
After his death he was a subject of devotion by
the faithful, one of the first saints to be so honoured despite the fact
he was not a martyr.
Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey.
