Legend of s.martin

  1. 1. St. Martin Legend
  2. 2. Martin was born in the year 316, in Sabária (now Hungary).
  3. 3. His father was a soldier of the Roman army ... ... and gave him a Christian education.
  4. 4. At age of 15, Martin went to Italy and joined the Roman army. Later he became a rich, courageous and powerful general.
  5. 5. One day, returning back home, he rode under a strong storm. The rain and the hail fell furiously, the furious wind howled and the cold seemed to crush the bones.
  6. 6. In the distance he saw a beggar, almost naked, mingled with the withered  and blackened trunks by the roadside.  He was stretching an arm in search of some help to save him from certain death.
  7. 7. When seeing the beggar, the general felt touched by such misery. So, he brought his horse to a halt, dismounted  and affectionately touched the hand of the poor.
  8. 8. Then, he took out the thick, warm coat that protected him and with a blow of the sword, he divided it into two.
  9. 9. He gave one half to the beggar and wrapped him up  with the rest as best as he can…
  10. 10. Despite poorly wrapped and the torrential rain, Martin went on his way, full of happiness ... Suddenly, the sky was clear and the sun of summer came, full of light and heat. For the three days that have lasted the journey, a bright sun accompanied the general. It's the summer of St. Martin.
  11. 11. Every year in November, we are presented with at least three wonderful days of sunshine, so that the memory of men, often short, do not forget the gesture that saved the life of the beggar.  Before leaving, they celebrated Magusto by eating some roasted chestnuts.  
  12. 12. Assentis and Chancelaria School Center Magusto At this time,  we traditionally celebrate "Magusto" - by making a campfire to roast chestnuts, sitting around, singing, eating  and tasting them.
