July 29th, 2016
"Martha was distracted by her many tasks." Luke 10 : 40

Today is the feast of St. Martha,  sister of Lazarus and Mary. She is a woman of faith. When Jesus entered a village a woman called Martha welcomed him. Relationships are important and Jesus’ friends in Martha’s family are mentioned in this bible story in terms of friendship and times of sorrow, healing bringing Lazarus back to life and Resurrection joy at Easter when Mary Magdalene heard Jesus call her Name.

 

Prayer

God of all good gifts you bless us with models such as Martha & Mary to discern the gifts you have given us and use them in the service of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever. Amen
