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.

    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.

    My name is Martha. I was born on the feast day of St. Martha. I thank God that I was given this saint name. I have learned to pray to her to intercede to Mary our Mother. for our Mother Mary is my Hope,and I trust in her divine mercy to pray for my soul to one day to be united in Heaven with God my Father. Thank you God for loving me First. I know that I am a sinner, and fall short of your glory. But by your stripes, I am Healed.Thank you Jesus. My Love. Amen
