Brother Martin Caine

On Nov 10th 1964 Bro Martin died in hospital in London. He was professed in 1926. His office for the greater part of his life was the porter, and his work brought hm into contact with many people. He was particularly well known to the people of St Benet’s and St Mary’s Clapham where he worked for many years. He was always kind and patient and quietly most efficient, whether he was receiving a Bishop or a poor man asking for an alms. He will be greatly missed by us all but especially by the poor who came regularly and were always received by him with great charity. In an earlier edition of the CSsR newsletter, Brother Martin was asked to write something on the Brother’s Vocation. Let it be his own epitaph …

‘The Redemptorist Brother’s life has a distinct purpose. Humble it may be, incomprehensible to many it will be; but to those who wish to serve God humbly and love our Lord personally, it is the answer.’
