St. Martha

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 29 of July, repeating indefinitely

Jesus liked to stay at the house of Martha, Mary and Lazarus, his friends at Bethany when He was in Judea. In one of these visits with which Jesus honored them, St. Luke tells us that St. Martha showed great solicitude to entertain and serve Him. She forgot the privilege of her rank and riches and would not leave so great an honor to servants only but was herself very busy in preparing everything for so great a guest. Mary sat all the while at our Savior’s feet, feeding her soul with his heavenly doctrine. Our meek and loving Lord was well pleased with the solicitude and earnestness with which Martha waited on him yet he commended more the quiet repose of Mary who attended only to the spiritual improvement of her soul: “Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things; but one thing is necessary.”
