ST. MARTIN DE PORRES (He was venerated from the day of his death. Many miraculous cures, including raising the dead attributed to Brother Martin. First black American saint. Also known as Martin of Charity; the Saint of the Broom (for his devotion to his work, no matter how menial) Established an orphanage and children’s hospital for the poor children of the slums. Set up a shelter for the stray cats and dogs and nursed them back to health. Lived in self-imposed austerity, never ate meat, fasted continuously, and spent much time in prayer and meditation with a great devotion to the Holy Eucharist.

known for his tender care of the sick and for his spectacular cures.

I always feel so blessed when I'm able to find so unique medals from Beloved Saints that we don't see any medals from or hardly hear from them and why they are venerated and it is an honor to be able to create with such treasures.

This is a vintage medal of St. Martin de Porres with a very unique finish and it's always an honor as well to bring to light St. Martin de Porres in my creations.

I used many other Catholic medals including Our Lady of Fatima, Holy Family, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of Czestochowa, Divine Mercy, Pope John Paul II, St. Faustina, St. Therese and others and beads are natural Jade.
