Jesus' friend, Martha
Tuesday is the Memorial of Saint Martha (the reading - Jn 11:19-27) and I thought I'd post some pictures of her from the film Jesus, one of the few Jesus movies I've seen that depicts her.
- Mary, Lazarus, Martha, and Joseph ... near the beginning of the movie, Joseph and Jesus visit the home of Martha
- Jesus arrives at Martha's house too late to save Lazarus' life
- Martha tells Jesus if he'd been there, her brother would still be alive
- Martha, the brought-back-to-life Lazarus, and Mary
