Children love animals, and so did many of the saints! Now you can introduce your little ones to the saints with Tiny Saints® Sidekicks™!
St. Martin de Porres ran a shelter where he would care for the sick and poor, even sick animals! He loved all animals, but Martin knew there were too many mice running around the streets of his city. They were climbing in pots and scurrying through houses. The cats could not keep up with them! Legend has it that Martin asked the mice to kindly leave. Because of Martin’s gentle nature, the mice listened to him. The cats he cared for at his shelter were able to rest until they were strong enough to find new homes.
