Martin de Porres (1579-1639), Saint: Black Catholic History Month on A Black-American Experience!®

St. Martin de Porres on A Black-American Experience!®


The tapestry on the walls of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels Downtown Los Angeles, California reflects the diversity of the Catholic Church and the Faith.

St. Martin de Porres, also St. Martin of Porres’ Feast Day is November 3 and was canonized by Pope John XXIII in 1962. He is a Dominican mystic and lay brother, me experienced many mystical gifts including bilocation and aerial flights.

Martin is the patron of interracial justice, founded an orphange and ministered to Afircan slaves brought to Lima where he was born. Outside of the Dominican Monastery he is known for care of the poor and sick. He is a friend of St. Rose of Lima and was aided by her who respected his penances and labors.

On 11/23/2008 between 1:20pm and 1:47pm, while writing about Black Catholic History Month I had several visions of St. Martin de Porres. In 1990 when Black Catholic History Month was founded, St. Martin de Porres was the first Black Saint to be Honored.
