Feast of St. Martin de Porres
St. Martin de Porres

St. Martin de Porres is here and says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

I (Maureen) wish St. Martin a Happy Feast Day. He smiles.

“This is the way to live every day, giving God the glory when you arise. With all your heart, say:”

“Dear Jesus, Divine and Beloved Savior, today I surrender

to You every pain–physical, spiritual or emotional. I will

not complain about inconveniences, demands upon my

time, breaches of privacy or the rudeness of those You

put in my life today. With Your help, I will accept each

present moment with Holy Love. Amen.”

“This is the loving, sweet surrender of your whole life, beginning with the present moment. This little prayer is the consecration to self-denial. Recite it with love.”
