St. Martin was the Bishop of Tours, a city in France. When he was a Roman soldier, he took pity on a beggar and cut his cloak in half to share with the beggar. The beggar revealed Himself to be Jesus Christ! Even as a soldier, St. Martin lived in prayer and fasting. When he became a priest later, the people of Tours wanted him to become their Bishop because he was so holy! He worked hard to dispel wrong beliefs in the Church while at the same time living an austere life.

St. Martin of Tours, patron saint of geese, was so unwilling to be made a bishop that he hid in a barn full of geese, whose cackling foiled his hiding spot.
