Saint Martin of Tours was from a region of Europe now known as Hungary and lived from 316 – 397 A.D. He was a soldier in the Roman army who, one day, met a beggar. Seeing that he was cold he cut his robe in half and gave him half. That night, in a dream, Jesus appeared to him as the beggar wearing the half robe. from that moment, he converted to Christianity, becoming a monk, then priest and eventually a Bishop. He was known for his preaching, converting pagans, his visions and for his gift of prophecy. He is one of the patron Saints of France.
