St. Martin De Porres was a Dominican brother who was known for his care over the poor and sick. He was a close friend to St. Rose of Lima, and is said to have the gifts of bilocation and aerial flight. St. Martin De Porres is the patron saint of African Americans, hairdressers, public health workers, social justice, and the poor. The Saint Martin De Porres resin statue is a wonderful gift for anyone who shares his namesake or for a confirmation candidate who has chosen his name as an example to live by.
Standing 8 inches tall, the religious Saint Martin De Porres resin statue is the perfect size for a mantel, desk, or nightstand. Our Saint Martin De Porres statue makes a great spiritual gift for anyone who has a special devotion to Saint Martin De Porres and would be especially appropriate for a Confirmation candidate taking the Confirmation name of Martin. Like all of the statues in our 'Saints and Protector' series, this Saint Martin De Porres statue comes in an attractive gift box.
His feast day is November 3.
