Memorial of Saint Martha
(Martha) told him, "Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world." (John 11:27)
Lord Jesus, we tend to give contrasting attention to Martha with her sister Mary, when You told them that Mary had chosen the better part. What is revealed to us of her in John is confidence in You.
Beginning with trust that her brother would not have died if You had been present, we then hear of her faith that Lazarus will rise on the last day, then that You are the life of God coming into the world. Like Martha, Lord, allow my faith in You not to waver and my testimony to Your Resurrection to progress toward our eternal life in You.
Saint Martha, pray for us.
