It's All Saints Day
Martha is the patron saint of servants and cooks.
The children at our Catholic School dress up as their favorite saint on
All Saints Day
And give a report on that saint.
If I was a child in the Catholic School
guess which saint I would chose?
But we're Lutheran
And our saints run to Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul
It's fascinating to me that Martha is the patron saint of
I couldn't have a better name
nor a better patron saint!
When I was a girl in Catholic school, I picked Saint Margaret, Queen of Scotland, as my favorite. I read about how she would walk to the gates and give all the poor people food. I thought that would be a pretty good job to be a queen and share food. I still think that would be a pretty good gig!
Saint are fascinating. Now I know more about St. Martha. Hope you had as nice of a November day as we did.
Fitting to say the least, Martha! I would say that you are a good custodian of your name.
