Saint Martha was the sister of Mary and Lazarus. She received the Lord into her house and provided for His needs with great care. At her request the Lord raised her brother from the dead. (Luke 10:38-42; Matthew 13:54-58; John 11:19-27).
Prayer: Almighty, ever-living God, Your Son graciously came as a guest in the house of Saint Martha. By her prayers give us grace to serve Christ faithfully in our brethren, and bring us to Your home in heaven. We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
