› St. Martha

But Martha was busy about much serving. Who stood and said: Lord, hast thou no care that my sister hath left me alone to serve? speak to her therefore, that she help me.

-Luke 10:40

Suppose you invited a very good friend over for the evening. You and your sister spent the entire day preparing the house for him by cleaning, freashinging flowers and so on. When your friend arrives, you greet him but continue to keep the house in order. Your sister peels off from the work and sits at the friend's feet and gives him all her attention. Naturally, you would think your sister very rude and lazy for not helping you. But what is your friend there for? 

Certainly not to sit alone in a room you tidied while you wash dishes.

St. Martha was placed in such a situation, she worked while Mary Madelene dedicated all her time listening to Our Lord. St. Martha was reminded that she was too careful, worried about too much and that "Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her."

From St. Martha we learn that "the life of action ceases when the body is laid down; but the life of contemplation endures and is perfected in heaven." Little Pictorial Lives of the Saints

Her feast day is July 29.

Please say a little prayer for our artist, Bee Jay.
