“The Charity of St. Martin” (detail) by Louis Anselme Longa

“Lord, if your people still have need of my services, I will not avoid the toil. Your will be done. I have fought the good fight long enough. Yet if you bid me continue to hold the battle line in defense of your camp, I will never beg to be excused from failing strength. I will do the work you entrust to me. While you command, I will fight beneath your banner.” (St. Martin of Tours, Bishop and Confessor, Patron Saint of Soldiers)

The Memorial of St. Martin of Tours, Bishop and Confessor (316 – 397) is November 11.
