Ss Mary, Martha & Lazarus

SS MARY, MARTHA & LAZARUS Pope Francis has added the memorial of Ss Mary, Martha, and Lazarus to the General Roman Calendar, giving the siblings the combined feast day of 29th July. They were added to demonstrate “the important evangelical witness they offered in welcoming the Lord Jesus into their home, in listening to him attentively, in believing that he is the resurrection and the life.” Ss Martha, Mary, and Lazarus were three siblings living in the town of Bethany outside of Jerusalem during the time of Christ.
