Feast Day of St. Martha
Today is the feast of St. Martha. In John’s gospel reading for today, Martha proclaims her faith in Christ as the Messiah, the Chosen One of God. We often think of Martha as the one who complained to Jesus about Mary, her sister. Martha wanted help and Jesus told her “Mary had chosen the better part,” by sitting with Jesus. Although this did take place, Martha’s faith was a monumental part of her life and a shining example to those around her. Today, let us ask St. Martha to pray for us to have greater faith.
