St. Martin de Porres – Halo Boys Frameable
St. Martin de Porres was born in Lima, Peru, to a Spanish nobleman and a freed slave of African and Native descent. He is the patron saint of many, including hair stylists (he was trained as a barber/ surgeon), Peru, social justice, public education, public health, persons who are bi-racial, and many more. Under Peruvian law, his mixed-heritage prevented him from fully joining a religious order. He inquired if the Dominicans of the Holy Rosary Priority in Lima would accept him as a “donado“ volunteer who could live with the community. He was accepted and undertook cooking and cleaning along with his old trades of barbering and healing. Eventually he was permitted to enter as a lay brother. He was deeply devoted to the Eucharist, and many miracles were attributed to him–healings, knowledge, bilocation, and a special ability to communicate with animals!
-The text reads: “St. Martin de Porres pray that I may share compassion”
-The hefty coverstock paper is 5″x7″, artwork is a smaller piece
– Print comes with a description of her life history on the back
– The print is sold unframed, but, I made the paper a size that is super easy to find in most stores. I figured I’d save you the $ on shipping.
– Print will come in a plastic sleeve, with some protective cardboard, in a bubble mailer.
The “Halo Girls” set is my artistic celebration of the wonder and diversity of God’s call…to every one of us. <3
