The words of Martha, 'I know that he will rise again
in the resurrection at the last day' (Jn 11:24), echo in our
souls as we pray and grieve for our beloved dead...
In what better place could we pray for the dead
than before the Eucharist, where we can
experience Our Blessed Savior Present?"

FEAST DAY - July 29
In St Martha's footsteps...
Dorothy Day said: "If everyone were holy and handsome, it would be easy to see Christ in everyone. But it was not Christ's way for Himself. Ask honestly what you would do when a beggar asked at your house for food. Would you give it on an old cracked plate, thinking that was good enough? Do you think that Martha and Mary thought that the old and chipped dish was good enough for their guest? It is not a duty to help Christ -- it is a privilege."
Sta Martha, ora pro nobis!
