St. Martha

Exodus 32: 15-24, 30-34, Ps. 106, Matthew 13: 31-35, or John 11: 19-27, or Luke 10: 38-42

Ringing true

Martha’s declaration of faith is as fine as any found elsewhere in the gospels. Can I make the same declaration today and mean it? Can I, when I receive Holy Communion and Jesus is right there with me as surely as he was with Martha, say what Martha said? A good deal of integrity of body and soul is needed to make declarations of faith that the world accepts. How does my voice sound to others? Does it resonate beautifully with truth?
