St. Martin divides his cloak


St. Martin was originally an officer in the Roman army. One bitterly cold winter’s day he was riding out of the town of Amiens in France, when at the city gates he saw a beggar almost totally without clothing, shivering with cold. No one had the charity to give him a worn out garment. Martin, moved with compassion, drew his sword and cur his warm military cloak in half, giving one piece to the beggar. He then rode on. The next night he had a dream, or rather a vision. He saw Our Lord Jesus Christ surrounded by angels, wearing the half-cloak that he had given the beggar and saying to the angels: “Look, this is the garment, which Martin gave to me.” The dream led Martin’s conversion. He was baptized and was more generous in his charity then ever. Later on he was made a bishop and led a saintly life. This anecdote teaches us that God regards what we do for our fellow creatures as done to him.
