|St. Martin: Walk ins are welcome!|
He later joined the Dominicans as a layman and later, with some resistance due to his skin color, became a priest. He loved the Eucharist and the poor. He would offer his bed, floor and the halls of the monastery to the sick and aged. This also was met with some resistance so he inspired homes for troubled and homeless youth and care centers for the sick.
He's depicted in art sometimes with a broom, because he saw no task as unimportant or unholy. There also sometimes are a mouse, cat and dog eating from one dish at his feet due to his care for the smallest of creatures and being an advocate of peace.
If you get your hair did today, wish your stylist or whatever a "Happy St. Martin's Day!"
