Heavenly Father,

As we begin this Saturday morning, we give thanks for the gift of another day and for the opportunity to celebrate the feast of Saint Martin I, a faithful servant of your Church and a defender of the faith.

We are inspired by the courage and devotion of Saint Martin, who fearlessly upheld the teachings of Christ and defended the Church against heresy and persecution. May his example strengthen our own faith and commitment to following your will.

Grant us, Lord, the grace to live lives of holiness and virtue, following in the footsteps of Saint Martin. Help us to remain steadfast in times of trial, trusting in your providence and relying on your strength.

As we go about our day, may we be mindful of the needs of others and seek to serve them with love and compassion, just as Saint Martin did.

Bless our efforts, Lord, and guide us in all that we do, that we may bring glory to your name and further the work of your kingdom here on earth.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
