DG BookGospel: Lk 10:38-42
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he entered a village and a woman called Martha welcomed him to her house.
She had a sister named Mary who sat down at the Lord’s feet to listen to his words. Martha, meanwhile, was busy with all the


serving and finally she said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the serving?” But the Lord answered,
“Martha, Martha, you worry and are troubled about many things, whereas only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the better part, and it will
not be taken away from her.”

 

Reflection:

It’s only normal for each of us to desire the “better
part.” Who wouldn’t. Nobody wants to be on the lousy end.
This tendency may be the result of a certain selfishness
within us that has attached itself to us as it almost becomes
second nature. On the other hand, it may also come from
a holy desire when the “better part” is identified as the will of
God in our lives. Conversely, sometimes we tend to
choose what we perceive as better for us because of our
myopic vision of reality. We simply do not have a three
hundred sixty degree view of it. This passage reveals
that Mary chose something we should all desire in life.
She chose to sit at the feet of Jesus and simply be with
Him. Martha was doing a lovely service by preparing
the meal and working hard, but Mary was focused on one
thing, her Lord. And therefore, presence is superior when
the one present is the Lord. Everything, our good words
and deeds pales into the background when the Lord
visits us in our life.
