“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.’”
What comes to your mind as you reflect on Martha’s request?
When have you felt sorry for yourself for “getting the short end of the stick”?
The next time you feel overwhelmed, ask yourself how you got in that situation.
Heritage word—”But one thing we can learn from this good woman, who evidently does exaggerate much. She reminds us that we should do all things in the name of Jesus.”
(Sister Mary Aloysia, Foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
