Gospel for the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time—Luke 10:38-42
“Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him. She had a sister named Mary who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.’
The Lord said to her in reply, ‘Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.’”
What strikes you in this situation?
What is your inner response?
Talk with God about that.
Heritage word—”Let us hold hands to help each other to advance towards our heavenly homeland, where we must already live in heart and mind by our holy desires.”
