St. Martha

St. Martha was a friend of Jesus and a hostess to him while he was in her house. St. Martha complained that her sister, St. Mary, was sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to him speak while she did all of the work in the house. Jesus told Martha that Mary had chosen better than she had. St. Martha, who died circa 80, is patron saint of homemakers.
