Love can be a tricky thing. Sometimes we spend a long time looking for it, or sometimes we have to go through the heartache of somebody we love leaving us. Thankfully, for these moments we can ask for the help of none other than St. Martha herself – the first Christian woman.
A prayer to St. Martha can help you with all kinds of tasks. If you’re a cook, homemaker, or domestic worker, St. Martha is the saint you need to turn to in difficult times. She’s also a patron of travelers. Read on to learn more about her blessings. She was born in Bethany, near Jerusalem, and was the sister of Lazarus and Mary. She was one of the first women to believe in Jesus, and is considered a patron saint of domestic workers, butlers, and innkeepers.
She was known for her hospitality and self-sacrifice. She served others before herself. Her faith and her devotion to the Lord inspired many to emulate her example. She is revered by the Church for her example in living a life of welcoming hospitality and compassion. She was also a role model for those around her, serving others in need. It is fitting that a prayer to St. Martha be centered around these virtues.
Who is St. Martha?
Martha evangelized Provence after Jesus’ death. She is credited with killing the Tarasque, a man-eating dragon. The story of Martha’s life is said to be the basis for the Catholic faith. She was credited with destroying the “La Tarasque” and spreading the gospel in Provence. The legend behind the Tarasque has continued to this day, and is still revered by Roman Catholics.
The Bible tells the story of Jesus and Martha. The two sisters were close to Jesus, and Jesus was particularly fond of Martha. In fact, he often visited Martha’s home in Bethany. The sisters would often serve him, and Martha would often beg him to help her sister. Mary, however, refused, and the two sisters began a long, hard battle. The story concludes with a beautiful prayer to St. Martha.
The prayer to St. Martha focuses on the sanctity of the motherly virtue Martha displayed. Her piety, kindness, and charity won her the admiration of the people of Marseille. In fact, she went so far as to predict her own death before it happened. Martha passed to the Lord on August 4th. Her remains lie at Tarascon in the region of Marseille, where she is revered.
