July 29 – Monday
Memorial of Saint Martha

Gospel Reading JN 11:19-27

Reflection
Martha’s faith in Jesus is absolute. She believes that her brother Lazarus will rise again in the resurrection on the last day. She acknowledges Jesus as ‘the Messiah, the Son of God’.
Faith in the resurrection helps us to live with an attitude of hope, sharing in the joy of the victory of the risen Christ over sin and death. It is because of the resurrection that Christ is with us on all of our journeys through life.

Prayer: (all together)
Lord Jesus help us to recognise your presence in the ordinariness of our lives and open our hearts to encounter You. Amen
