St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do, thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

Women of the Bible I would Like to Meet:: Part 3:: Martha

 Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home.  She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying.  But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me.”  But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.”
Luke 10: 38-46 

I think, when I meet Martha, I will find her in the kitchen cooking.  She has the Gift of Hospitality.  

Martha, you were good friends with Jesus and His followers, weren't you?  How did you feel about that?

Did Jesus visit you often? 

Were you always busy cooking for Him?

What were His favorite foods that you cooked?

Did you get to meet His Mother, too?

Did Jesus ever help you out in the kitchen?

Did you have many quiet conversations with Jesus?

Were there many who wanted to eat at your home when Jesus was there?

How did Lazarus and Mary feel about Jesus being at your home?

Did you and Lazarus and Mary share a home?

Were you the eldest child?

You must have been very stressed when Jesus was at your home that time.  Were there a lot of people who were hungry or was it just a bad day for you?

How did you feel when Jesus, your Master, reminded you that you were distracted because you had so much to do?

How did you feel when He reminded you that you should relax and follow your sister's lead?

Were you embarrassed?

What did you do after Jesus said that Mary had chosen the better part?

How did you feel when Jesus refused to tell Mary to go and help you?

Did you cry?

Did you forget about the kitchen and sit down with Jesus and Mary?

Did you continue to work in the kitchen?

How was the meal?  

Did Jesus enjoy the lovingly cooked meal you prepared?

Did Mary help?
