St Martin of Tours
I am not Catholic but for certain reasons this Saint has appealed to me this year. It may be because he fits into our giving theme this year. Giving to the poor who need it more than we do. I too have heard God speak to me. I also did as God Commanded. I visited Tours and yet I don't remember running in to St. Martin although I saw so much in such a little time I must have made his acquaintance in my week I spent sight seeing. I do remember visiting the monastery where he is buried. So today on his feast day I will tell the kids his story as I have found it written online. I have also found a couple paintings depicting him to show the kids.
