Loving Those Who Hate You

Reflect

St Martin de Porres channeled his energies into doing choresfrom barbering to cleaningat a Dominican convent. Eventually, the community’s head disregarded the law restricting Martin from entry into the congregation, and allowed him to become a lay brother. Martin is remembered for his care of his confreresnot all of whom welcomed himand of the poor.


Pray

St. Martin de Porres,
you loved and served
those who despised you.
Help me to identify
and set aside
my hidden prejudices.
Amen.
