Oil dedicated to St Martin de Porres on prayer cloth

The Oil dedicated to St Martin de Porres on prayer cloth is dedicated to one of the world’s most popular saints.

Martin de Porres, O.P. (December 9, 1579 – November 3, 1639), was a lay brother of the Dominican Order.   He was beatified in 1837 by Pope Gregory XVI.  In addition, Martin was canonized in 1962 by Pope John XXIII. He is the patron saint of mixed-race people.  Also, he is patron of barbers, innkeepers, public health workers, and all those seeking racial harmony.

St Martin was noted for work on behalf of the poor, establishing an orphanage and a children’s hospital. He maintained an austere lifestyle, which included fasting and abstaining from meat.  Many miracles were attributed to him.  They were those of levitation, bilocation, miraculous knowledge, instantaneous cures, and an ability to communicate with animals.

Tradition of oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person is invited to apply oil on the part of their body they want healed.  As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power.  It is God who has the power to heal.  Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.

 The Irish Blessings oils are dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer.  They are placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before being sent out. Also, all the oils have their own individual essential oil fragrance. The oils are of therapeutic grade.
The oil is presented on a prayer cloth enclosed in a card.  The small card goes out with the larger card that has the prayer for healing on the inside.  The cards are personalised for the saint to whom the oil is dedicated to.
