Feast of St. Martin de Porres O.P.

St. Martin of Porres was a 17th century Dominican lay brother from Peru blessed with the miraculous abilities of bilocation and levitation.  His feast is celebrated on the 5th of November by the Dominican order (the Novus Ordo celebrates his feast on the 3rd of November).  He was friends with both St. Rosa of Lima (a third order lay Dominican) and St, Juan Macías, a fellow lay brother.  

Saint Martin of Porres, pray for us.
