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

    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.

    I love St. Martha and all she has to teach us. She really listened to Jesus and put into practice what He taught her. She was humble and "served"!
    BUT}- why the dragon?

    I looked up St Martha because her feast day is my birthday. I am very pleased to share a special day with her. I love her prayer.

    My name is Martha but I've always felt myself to be more of a Mary. My life as a wife and mother necessitates I serve others as Martha did but I'm not very efficient and don't get everything done. After reading this article I think maybe St Martha can help me appreciate both the active (Martha) and prayerful (Mary)parts of my life.

    It is a wonderful article which highlights and gives importance to hospitality ; Martha is portrayed as the example of service and as the one who serves the Lord always.

    That is a wonderful article on Martha, putting her in the proper perspective and also highlighting the importance and significance of her hospitality and service to Jesus without becoming showy.

    I chose Martha as my confirmation name when I was baptized last Easter Vigil, April 3rd, 2010. My son's birthday is July 29th and I am a server and I hope that my son will be as one who serves also.
    I adore Martha as one who didn't complain and did all of the work. I also loved that she overcomes the dragon!
