Marthe virginis
Martha, virgin (29 July)

Mass for Saint Martha: Graduale: Domine, non est tibi cure

Domine, non est tibi cure, quod soror mea reliquit me solam ministrare? Dic ergo illi, ut me adiuvet. V. Martha, Martha, sollicita es et turbaris erga plurima. Maria optimam partem elegit, quae non auferetur ab ea.

Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Bid her therefore that she help me. Verse: Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things. Mary hath chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from her.
