San Martin de Caballero Retablo Patron of Small Business, Inn Keepers, Hotel-Keepers, Horses, Equestrians, Cavalry, Tailors, Gamblers, Beggars. Invoked against Poverty and Alcoholism

St. Martin was Hungarian, born in 315 AD. He was part of the Roman Cavalry. One day he saw a scantly clothed beggar who was cold. Martin ripped his cloak in half and wrapped it around the man. That night the Christ appeared to him in the cloak. He became a Christian monk and later the Bishop of Tours. He was said to have cured lepers with a kiss and raised people from the dead. He was a man of compassion who gave a great deal to charity. He is patron of those who are relying on strangers to help them. In Mexico he is prayed to for small business, inn and shopkeepers who all rely on strangers for their lively hood.

"San Martin, like you, may I always be strong and charitable."
