Feast of Saint Martha

"Everything is a grace, everything is the direct effect of our Father's love--difficulties, contradictions, humiliations, all the soul's miseries, her burdens, her needs--everything, because through them, she learns humility, realizes her weakness."
--Abbe Combes from The Spirituality of Saint Therese

Saint Martha, pray for us.


In an age like ours, which is not given to letter-writing, we forget what an important part it used to play in people's lives.
