Day One

“Saint Martin—we might say—is an everyday saint. Above all he accepted life as it was presented to him . . . And perhaps that was precisely the most humble, the least visible form of holiness he could practice. [It] was precisely in his daily routine that he found God. In everyday life, with its lowly duties, its little conflicts, its modest gains.”

—Régine Pernoud, Martin of Tours: Soldier, Bishop, and Saint (San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 2006), pp 179-180
