saint MARTHA

 

Feast Day:  July 29              Patroness of Hospitality

“Jesus loved Martha and Mary and Lazarus.”  This unique statement in John’s gospel tells us of the special relationship Jesus had with Martha, her sister, and her brother.

 

Apparently Jesus was a frequent guest at Martha’s home in Bethany, a small village two miles from Jerusalem.  We read of three visits in Luke 10:38-42, John 11:1-53, and John 12:1-9.

 

Martha is the patron saint of housewives, servants, and cooks.

 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the most important thing that could be said about us is “They served”.

 

Prayer:  Saint Martha, pray for us that we might serve Jesus better.  Help us to overcome our distractions and worries to listen to his words and be present to him this day.  Amen.
