ST. MARTIN OF TOURS (316 – 397) was the Bishop of Tours, a city in France. When he was a Roman soldier, he took pity on a beggar and cut his cloak in half to share with the poor man. The beggar revealed Himself to be Jesus Christ! Even as a soldier, St. Martin lived in prayer and fasting. When he became a priest later, the people of Tours wanted him to become their Bishop because he was so holy! He worked hard to dispel wrong beliefs in the Church while at the same time living an austere life. He is the patron saint of soldiers. His feast day is on 11 November.
