St. Martin’s Day: A Day of Peace

St. Martin’s Day: A Day of Peace

“Some claim that it was mere coincidence that the leadership of the warring nations involved chose St. Martin’s Day as the day the armistice in World War I officially began. But I love the symbolism that the thirty-two nations involved in this terrible struggle laid down their arms on this feast day of St. Martin, much as St. Martin himself renounced his participation in warfare centuries before.”
