St. Martin De Porres

I stopped in at St. Peter Julian's in Chinatown last week and went on a shopping spree in their fabulous little gift shop, hidden away at the side of the church. It must be one of Sydney's best-kept secrets. By far the best range of Holy Pictures in Australia - I came out with arm-loads. The church is meant to close for renovations soon, and I am terrified that they will close the shop, or it will become more expensive.
Anyway, here is my new favourite Holy Picture. It is of St. Martin de Porres, a mixed-race Dominican brother from Peru who was known to levitate. Isn't he wonderful?
