St. Robert Bellarmine-Compassion is preferable to cleanliness
Optional Memorial of St. Martin de Porres, Religious;
Blessed Virgin Mary
Compassion is preferable to cleanliness. Reflect that with a little soap I can easily clean in some way a burden to others, whether he is a superior or a subject, an old man or a young one, a scholar or a dunce.
