St. Martin Caballero is the patron saint of those in need. He is very popular in Mexico and other Latin American countries. He is the patron saint of horsemen and of long-haul truck divers. His feast day is celebrated on November 11th.
After several years as a soldier for the Roman army, Martin encountered a poor beggar. When the man asked Martin to help him find clothes, Martin took his own cloak and tore it in half, giving half to the beggar. After this event, Martin had a vision where he saw Jesus Christ wearing the portion of his cloak and telling the angels that Martin had clothed him.
In his later life Saint Martin became the Bishop of Tours, France, where many miracles and interventions were attributed to him. Saint Martin is associated with money drawing, gambling, and better business work. Beautiful statue of St. Martin Caballero giving half of his cloak to the beggar. A perfect addition to the decor of any Christian Home or church and a great gift for clergy, birthdays, Christmas, or any special gift-giving occasion!
