St. Martin the Merciful

I just went through today's calendar entry a little more thoroughly than I had time to earlier this morning and I realized that today is a doubly beautiful feast day as it is not only St. Menas' day, but also the feast of St. Martin the Merciful of Tours and therefore the nameday of two very dear friends of mine from that fiery Orthodox Christian beacon on a hill in a land of Evangelical Protestantism, the Commune :-). So, a doubly joyous feast to everyone! May the Saints' blessings and prayers be with us all! For more on St. Martin's life please check out Orthodox America's right up on his life here.
