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

    Dear St Martha

    I have been praying to you for over 20 years and you have never let me down, I want the world to know about you and what a miraculous saint you are. You have been looking after myself and my family all these years and I would truly like to thank you. I am praying to you at the moment to help my son and also my husband. I feel like I am forever asking you favours but somehow you must be listening. One last favour is to help my poor mum who is not well with Parkinsins, please help her to get better and if that is not possible, please help the pain to go away so she can enjoy what time she has left in this world.

    Thankyou again and I love you St Martha

    Dear Saint Martha. Please help free me and my son from the awful monster upstairs and his friends. He is so dangerous and if only he would change for the good... or something. Although it seems impossible.

    I want to no longer have to fear what he is planning and doing so that I may pray in peace with more devotion and no more absurd worries. Thank you Dear Saint Martha.

    Dear St. Martha, I'm happy to tell you that my mother has gone to her eternal rest about 5 months ago. It was a time of relief to see that she was freed from her earthly strife, to be given her eternal reward. Last night I saw her in a dream looking hale, hearty and healthy, as we knew her for most of her life. Thank you Martha, for giving me the grace and strength to have attended to her needs in her feeble years. I look forward to more favours from you, which is of urgency and utmost importance. Pray to the same Jesus who raised Lazaurs, your brother from the dead to heal Christian Vengadesan Ruiz that he may be sound of mind and body. Free him from the terrible affliction of seizures, speech delays and inappropriate behaviours. I ask this of you on your feast and I sincerely look to you to intercede for me. Grant all that I ask in Jesus name. Amen

    I never knew about Saint Martha. I have been suffering from anxiety, excessive worry which keeps me up at night and I haven't had regular sleeping patterns in months. As I am very spiritual I took it as a calling from God and opened up the bible asking him to reveal to me something, and I was directed to the passage of how Martha was worried and anxious and her sister Mary knew God came first. So now I pray to Martha who was in my situation to heal me. I am also doing an online jesuit retreat and meditating. I can't see how God couldn't see my effort to put Him first in my life. But the anxiety still plagues me, I pray for Martha to pray to the Lord for me.

    Saint Martha is one of my favorite Saints. She has been very good to my family over the years. I hope that many more people/families will come to know her, and receive her aide. In turn come even more closely to GOD, and Mother Mary. It is with this hope that I would like to post the Novena Prayer we recieved many years ago to Saint Martha...

    A POWERFUL NOVENA

    SAINT MARTHA, I RESORT TO YOUR PROTECTION AND AIDE, IN PROOF OF MY AFFECTION AND FAITH, I OFFER THIS LIGHT WHCH I WILL BURN EVERY TUESDAY. COMFORT ME IN MY DIFFUCULTIES, AND THROUGH THE GREAT FAVOR TOU DIDST RECIEVE WHEN THOU SAVIOUR WAS LODGED IN THOU HOUSE, INTERCEED FOR MY FAMILY, THAT WE WILL BE PROVIDEDFOR IN OUR NECESSITIES. I BESEECH TH SAINT MARTHA, (ASK FAVOR) FOR HELP AND GRACE AS THOU DIDST RECIEVE WHEN YOU OVERCAME THE DRAGON THOU DIDST HAVE AT THOU FEET.

    3 OUR FATHERS
    3 HAIL MARYS
    3 GLORIAS

    This prayer is said 9 Tuesdays in succession. On each Tuesday, light a candle and leave a copy of this prayer in the church for someone to spread devotion. This Sant grants everything no matter how difficult, and within the 9 Tuesdays. She is well known in Europe, but little known in this Country.

    Pray that my children as they grow will never lose trust and respect to us.
    Pray that they will be God fearing persons.
    Guide my children in school and wherever they go.

    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.
