St. Martin, of Hungarian origin, was, about 340, officer of the imperial guard in garrison at Amiens. One winter's day he met a beggar and gave him half of his coat. Christ appeared to him then and revealed to him his vocation. He founded the Abbey of Ligugé in Poitiers, then became Bishop of Tours. His cult was so great that today nearly five hundred French towns bear his name! Why not your baby?
