Talking About St. Martha on Relevant Radio

Yesterday was the feast day of one of my favorite saints, the hard-working, anxious St. Martha. I was actually relaxing (for once!) while watching my children swim in our neighbor’s pool, when I got a call from Cale Clarke. He wanted to know if I would like to talk about this blog and St. Martha on his nationally syndicated talk show on Relevant Radio… that very day!

It turned out to be a great conversation. We talked about:

  • having a deep prayer life in the midst of work and family life
  • how this blog got started
  • why St. Martha should be the patron of over worked, unappreciated moms
  • the tension many Catholic parents feel between wanting a contemplative prayer life and meeting the demands of caring for our families
  • the prayer of Mary (sister of Martha) vs. the prayer of Martha
  • how to love when love has faded
  • and how to evangelize our children with joy
Poor Martha… she gets a bad rap! But I really relate to her, don’t you?

Of course, I have to share it with you:

How to Have a Deep Prayer Life and Work in the World

Cale Clarke has a wealth of knowledge about all things Catholic and he’s such a dynamic speaker… no wonder he’s got two shows on Relevant Radio:

Tune in when you get a chance!

  1. Congrats on the interview, how exciting…we just celebrated the feast of St Martha here on workshop at Copper Ridge Conferee Centre and had similar reflections about this sometimes undervalued saint. I can relate for sure!
