Most glorious Martin de Porres,
whose burning charity embraced not only the needy brethren,
but also the very animals of the field,
splendid example of charity,
we hail thee and invoke thee!
From that high throne which thou dost occupy,
deign to listen to the supplications of thy needy brethren that,
by imitating thy virtues,
we may live contented in that state in which God has placed us
and carrying with strength and courage our cross,
we may follow in the footsteps of Our Blessed Redeemer
and His most afflicted Mother,
that at last we may reach the Kingdom of Heaven
through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
