Saint Martha was a sister of Lazarus, whom Christ raised from the dead. She was one of the Myrrh-bearing Women who came to the Lord's tomb on the morning of Pascha.
After the murder of Saint Stephen, a persecution broke out in Jerusalem and Lazarus and his sisters were forced to leave the city. They preached the Gospel in various places.
Saint Martha is commemorated on June 4 and on the Sunday of the Myrrh-bearing Women. In light of the story in the Gospel of Luke (10:38-42) about Martha's anxiety in serving the Lord at table, she is considered a patron saint for those who are prone to anxiety and worrying.
This icon jumped out at me the minute I saw it on the screen and I had to order. When my order arrived, I was not disappointed! The colors are beautiful and vivid and I feel for the first time like Saint Martha is a friend of mine. Like her I struggle with worry and busyness, but I hope that like her I will have faith in Jesus as the Resurrection and the Life, the Messiah and Son of God who has come into the world.
