This prayer for generosity by St. Ignatius Loyola‚ describes Lazaro Martinez:
Lord‚ teach me to be generous and serve you as you deserve.
To give and not to count the cost‚
To fight and not heed the wounds‚
To labor and not seek for rest‚
To toil and not reward‚
Except that of knowing that I do your will.
