There are three readings in the Bible that tell of Jesus visiting the home of Martha, and there is a phrase in John’s Gospel that says “Jesus loved Martha and Mary and Lazarus”. Through these readings, we learn of the special relationship that Jesus had with Martha, her sister, Mary, and her brother, Lazarus.
During the first visit of Jesus, as told in the book of Luke 10:38-42, it was important to Martha that she served Jesus and His Disciples with hospitality and generosity. This first visit of Jesus and His words helped Martha to realize that listening to Jesus was more important than worrying about the many tasks of serving guests.
The book of John 11:1-53 tells of the next visit of Jesus, when Martha is mourning the death of her brother, Lazarus. During this visit when speaking with Jesus, Martha proclaims her believe in Jesus as the Son of God, and her faith that Lazarus would rise again in the resurrection of the last day. This is when Jesus raised her brother Lazarus from the dead.
The telling of the last visit with Jesus in John 12:1-9, gives us a clear picture of Martha serving Jesus without false impressions or commotion, and with simple dignity of purpose.

Novena to St Martha
St Martha, I resort to thy aid and protection. As proof of my affection and faith I offer thee this light, which I shall burn every Tuesday. Comfort me in all my difficulties and through the great favors thou didst enjoy when the Saviour was lodged in thy house, intercede for my family, that we be provided for in our necessities. I ask of thee, St Martha, to overcome all difficulties as thou didst overcome the dragon which thou hadst at thy feet.
