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

    St. Martha, the instruction Jesus gave to you saved me from myself. Fretting madly away one day long ago my friend whispered to me, "Martha, Martha." I knew right that second that I needed to change my focus...everything in my life had to be about Jesus every moment. When it came time to choose my Christian name as I was confirmed there was nothing it could be but Martha. I wear your medal with pride and humility, to be always reminded to sit with Jesus, because He loves me. Our youngest child was born on your feast day, today he is 17. He left to the Catholic Youth Conference this morning. He has been raised in a loving, happy Catholic home, but it is in the midst of an evil world and a realm of darkness for young people. He is in the spiritual battle now, as all teenagers are. Please, I pray that you lead our personal saints, guardian angels, and personal family in Heaven this weekend praying for the Holy Spirit to fill Sam, for Jesus to whisper his name, for Our Father to put His eternal stamp upon him, and for Our Lady to mother him always better than I ever can. Thank you for all you are in my life. I love you, My Sister. Amen.

    There are three types of servants. The first type is the one who feels that he is a slave .He has to do otherwise he will be punished. The second type is the one who thinks he is servant and he is supposed to do his duty. So he does his duty and not more than that. But the last type is the one who feel him a beloved son and daughter of his father and mother and does the work not with the slave mentality and servant mentality but as a beloved. He or she goes beyond doing good work out of love and sonship. Here we have a saint who is like the last type who welcomed Jesus and treated him well at the every visit of him. Mary and Lazarus was really a good friend of Jesus. I learn a good lesson from Martha. I need her protection and prayers. Thank you

    St. Martha, I've always been fascinated by the 3 siblings in your blessed think that Jesus visited you often, spoke with the people that gathered in your home, and dinned with you. How sweet and yet how true to what we do in our daily lives. St. Martha, I admire you sincere devotion to serve Jesus and your guests. What a wonderful and thoughtful hostess you must have been. I'm not surprised at your complaint of Mary's preoccupation with listening to Jesus. But I've learnt that that is the "better part". You were grieved at the death of your brother Lazarus. Jesus responded with giving life to him. I now pray for the gift of thoughtful and loving service to my aging mother. More importantly, I want to keep focused on her needs. Help me not to be diverted by other's words. Please keep my mother Victoria Gonzlaes in the loving protection of Our lord Jesus. I also pray for the healing of mind and of body of Christian Vengadesan Ruiz. I ask this in Jesus name. Amen

    1 Timothy 2:5
    For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,

    theres only one way to God...JESUS CHRIST!!!, these saints have no power nor can they intercede for you. pray in the name of jesus to get to the Lord. Non of these saints shed blood for your sins.

    2 Corinthians 11:14
    And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

    I am going to get confirmed as well and i need to pick a saint that is a good role model for me. After reading this article i have finally found a wonderful saint to choose. I feel that everyone should look up to saint Martha and be kind and generous like Jesus wishes us all to be.
