Jack “The Agnostic” Garcia, a Eucharistic minister of the Holy Sacrament in the Roman Catholic church examines the life, legend and legacy of the great St. Martin (The glory of Gaul). Born into a pagan Roman military household circa 340 AD , Martin is drawn to Christianity at a young age but is compelled by his father (a highly decorated imperial officer) to join the army. The future Saint never shirks his military duty but becomes a most unusual soldier , living more like a Monk than a soldier. One night, Martin dreams of Christ and transforms into a conscientious objector, refusing to brandish a sword or kill the enemy. Imprisoned for his beliefs but eventually discharged from military service, he pursues his religious calling and soon gains a reputation as a Holy Man and Miracle Worker. Rising to the office of Bishop, Martin plants monasteries all over Gaul and during an era of great religious conflict and slaughter, he always remained true to his ideals of charity, mercy, tolerance and non-violence.
