St. Martha Comments

"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. Many of us find it easy to identify with Martha in the story Luke tells. ... Continue Reading

    I first came to hear about St Martha in 2005 the year I was made redundant. Since then she has always answered my prayers. I feel now that is she always around me and I can visualise Jesus visiting her home on a sunny Sunday afternoon and being a guest of the family. I feel part of that family. I thank you St Martha for all you have done for me.

    I learnt about St. Martha very recently when i recieved a new phone from my boyfriend and the prayers were already downloaded to the phone, i was very impressed by the prayer even though i had never heard of it before and from that moment on, i knew and trusted that this was my saint and i believe that i will achieve my prayer through her. I have so far said the St. Martha prayer since last tuesday and i am looking forward to a fruitful relationship with st. Martha, i trust and believe that she is a miracle working saint and i trust that i will get a new job and leave this stressful job that i have trusting and believing in my new saint. Thank you St. Martha for restoring faith and belief in me.

    Dearest St Martha,

    Thank you for reaching out to me and finding me. Thank you for the generous offering of your faithful intercession. Since July 2012, I have said 3 novenas, and all have been answered generously, by your intercession.

    Through your intercession, my faith in the Lord's goodness and providence, as well as an ardent desire to seek His will has grown tremendously.

    Thank you for walking with me, and taking me under your care.

    The last novena, came to an end of the Tuesday of the Holy Week (26th March 2013), during which the Lord provided me with a miraculous answer to my prayers. Continue to intercede and walk with us, St Martha, as we continue to seek and discern God's will for us. Amen.

    Please forgive me St. Martha for going against your advice. You were helping me and I became impatient. I'm sorry. Please resume working with me and help me bring my situation to a resolution. I will continue to pray to you and perform a second novena to you.

    Thank YOU Saint Martha for agreeing to work with me and giving me a SIGN the very next day after I prayed to you. I will do as I promised and place the roses on the altar today and will order your statue. I am so delighted to have your aid and I already know how STRONG you are as my beloved has called to check on me this morning (which he hasn't done in a year's time). Thank you, thank you, thank you Saint Martha!!!

    Dear St. Martha, I promise you the most beautiful white flowers that I can find. Please reunite myself and my boyfriend. And, St. Martha, I take full responsibility for my faults and failings, but if you could just open this man's eyes to even see and change his faults so that our relationship can grow, and thrive and honor God, I would be forever grateful. Otherwise, St. Martha, if this is not a good relationship for us, please release me from all feelings for this man and let me feel no pain.

    I have just started to develop and relationship with St. Martha. I am simply amazed with how much I have learned and realize she has been with me and I didnt even know it. I feel such a warmth and love I have never felt before. The first day the feeling was so strong I cried because I had never felt the feeling before.

    I am a true worrier. I worry all the time. I want to develop a relationship with her and begin to encoounter more of her blessings. I need guidance and direction because no one has ever mentioned her to me. She just made herself known to me.

    As I type I am getting teary yed because it simply amazes me how much care, love, patience and attention she has put into us establishing a relationship. I am super anxious to learn and grow with her.

    Thank you St. Martha for allowing me to be aware of you and your love. I look forward to developing a relationship with you. Thjank you so much for your patience and understanding with me. Thank you so much St. Martha all I can say is Thank You!!!
