There is need of only one thing

“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.” (LK 10: 41-42)

We are very active. We have so many things to do: our work, our family, our friends, our relatives, our Church and many different social responsibilities. Sometimes we are busy being busy because we are running from things to things, living more in “chronos” than in “cairos.” Our Lord asks us today to remember that our actions should be based on our relationships. When we take care of our relationship as a very important priority—like our rituals—our actions will be consistent with who we are.

“Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.” (Gospel Acclamation)
