Dominican Saint Martin de Porres

Saint Marin de Porres was well known for healing. He, a mestizo, never forgot his heritage and tended to the needs of the poor indigenous people of Lima. Once, after having been scolded by his superior for bringing an injured man to his room in the priory, he replied:

Forgive my error, and please instruct me, for I did not know that the precept of obedience took precedence over that of charity.
