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 was baptized and confirmed as Martha.As I observed,as well the others, she lives in me. How happy and lucky as in those times, I witnessed the resurrection of Christ.
    St Martha, you are the patron of cooks and I do love cooking.Its my passion.
    The patron of servants, I helped people with no waiting for a return.Its wholeheartedly.
    I just need to lessen to worry little things.
    St. Martha, you believed in Jesus Christ, that's why you served him a lot.
    I wanted to served Jesus Christ more.

    ..St Martha is very miraculous. I've been praying to her since 2004.She granted almost all my wishes and petitions. Devote your time every Tuesday and ask for her help. She never failed to help me especialy in my big problems.

    I have been praying to St. Martha since the 80's and to this date, I know so little of St. Martha, the Saint who answered all my prayers. True, everything that I have prayed for was accorded, and true, even before the 9th Tuesday my prayers were acknowledged.
    Your faith will lead and help you see through the different dimensions of how your prayers are acknowledged. For me, it was and I look at it as: yes, no (not this, something better is meant for you) or wait. Have faith and pray to harden your faith.

    I was just introduced to St. Marta and have started to do her 9 day novena. Talk to her like you would a mother or a friend. She just did something very sweet for me. I was crying to her and asked her to let me have communication from my estranged husband, and a few minutes later my phone dinged... it was him... amazing. It was completely St. Marta's doing - he rarely communicates with me. Oh, I put a little rosary beside her picture and candle.

    St Martha, your prayer came to me as a help from persons unknown and I will begin the novena to you next Tuesday 20.3.12. I ask you to intercede for me with the Lord and obtain the grant of my request for the man who is right for me (right inside and out for me, the Lord and with himself) and who I am right for to come into my life as my partner through life. I ask that this happens soon and that we achieve a happy, holy, faithful, loving and blessed eternal marriage. Thank you. Amen.

    Dear St. Marta: I have just discovered you. I ask you to help restore my marriage of almost 15 years and bring my husband home to me. St. Marta I promise to do your novena for the next 9 weeks, lighting your candle on that Tuesday. I will pick the candles up this evening. St. Marta, please encourage me by giving me some immediate sign. I have worked so hard to keep my marriage and my family together and I love my husband. Awaken him to see that his family hold true and unconditional love for him and the rest is not real.

    St. Marta I promise to make your name known by publication, and I promise to bring you some treat each Tuesday.

    Help me St. Marta like you have helped so many others, please restore my marriage to the man I love. Thank you, Anne

    With grateful thanks to St Martha for granting my novena yet again - my special saint since childhood and always grants my favours for which I am so grateful - thank you for all the mini miracles in my life and for looking after my family too.

    Also St Jude, St Christopher, St Martin & St Anthony to whom I always pray and of course our guardian angels who watch over us and our home.

    We lead a gifted life and for that I am truly grateful

    I have been devoted to SaintMartha since 1980, and I am still devoted to her. Now a days she is remembered by me every Tuesday, an every last Tuesday I have a mass done to her name. Saint Martha had been with me since then. Every year on her day I tried to give prayers around in every church and everyone I meet that day. She helped me a lot through these past years. She is considered to as the Saint of Family.
