Patron Saint Martha
St. Martha was a friend of Jesus and the sister of Mary
and Lazarus. She served dinner to Jesus at a gathering
in His honor. Because of this, St. Martha was named
the patron saint of:
* Domestic servants
* Hotel keepers
* Laundry workers
* Single laywomen
* Villajoyosa, Spain
Jesus praised St. Martha for taking time out from her
guests and homemaking duties to sit and listen to what
He had to say. Even though she was criticized by her
friends and relatives for shirking her womanly work,
she knew the words of Jesus were more important.
Novena to Saint Martha
O glorious Saint Martha,
I have recourse to your protection and aid,
And as proof of my affection and faith
I promise faithfully to complete this novena.
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 beg your supplications
Especially in behalf of the favor
I ask of you in this novena.

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.
