Memorial of Saint Martha

Saint of the Day:  Saint Martha of Bethany

1st century

Sister of Mary and Lazarus, all close friends of Jesus

patron of housewives, cooks and waiters

Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.

Saint Martha in Scripture

  • Luke 10:38–42:  Jesus tells Martha that her sister Mary has chosen the better part
  • John 11:19–27:  Jesus teaches Martha that he is the resurrection and the life
  • John 12:2:  Martha serves Jesus and Mary anoints his feet with costly oil

But even now, I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.

Question of the Day:  Will you welcome Jesus as a guest in your home, heart, and life? Will you serve him in all you do? Will you open and pour out your heart to him in times of distress? Will you sit at his feet in trust with love? Will you choose the better part?
