About St. Martha

St. Martha of Bethany is described in the Gospels of St. Luke and St. John. She is described as living in the village of Bethany with her siblings Mary and Lazarus. She is the middle child, with Lazarus being the eldest and Mary being the youngest. She was a witness to Jesus’ resurrection of her brother Lazarus.

In the Gospel of St. Luke, Jesus visited the home of two sisters named Mary and Martha. The two sisters are contrasted, Martha was “busy with many things” while Jesus was their guest, and Mary had chosen “the better part”. The better part was listening to the master’s discussions. As Jesus and his Disciples were on their way, Jesus came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. Martha’s sister Mary sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what He had to say, but Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. Eventually, she asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself”, and the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her”- Luke 10:38-42.

In the Gospel of John, Martha and Mary appear in connection to two incidents, the raising from the dead of her brother Lazarus – John 11, and the anointing of Jesus at the home of Simon the Leper – John 12:3. Again, Martha appears to be the more aggressive of the sisters, as she ran to meet Jesus as he was coming, hearing that Lazarus had passed. Mary on the other hand quietly waited in the distance, until Jesus called her. Jesus had to remind Martha that if she had “faith”, she would see the Glory of God. He then went to the tomb, and called Lazarus forth, 4 days after his passing.

Legend has it that Martha, Mary and Lazarus left Israel after Jesus’ death, around the year 48. They settle in France, where she passed away, and spent most of her time there teaching the faith to many.

Prayer to St. Martha

O glorious Saint Martha,
I run to your protection and aid,
comfort me in my difficulties
and intercede for my family
with your intimate friend, our Savior,
that we may always hold God in our hearts
and be provided for in our necessities.

I ask you, Saint Martha,
by your intercession to help me
in overcoming all my difficulties
and to teach me to become great
in the Kingdom of Heaven
by becoming as humble as you
in this world.
Amen.
