November 11 – Saint Martin of Tours

Saint Martin of Tours

O Precious Jesus, Saint Martin of Tours was raised by pagan parents, but after joining the Roman army he began to study the Christian faith.  When his desire to imitate You compelled him to help a beggar, You came to him in a vision and called him to receive baptism and enter religious life.  Eventually he became a bishop and banished pagan worship from his diocese.  I ask him to pray for those who work in the military today.  Protect them, O Lord, and inspire their faith to grow despite the demands and training of military duty.  Give them a desire to serve You above all else and guide them through holy priests.  Saint Martin, pray for us.  Amen.
