Gospel | Luke 10:38-42

Now as [Jesus and his disciples] went on
their way, he entered a certain village,
where a woman named Martha welcomed
him into her home. She had a sister named
Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and
listened to what he was saying. But Martha
was distracted by her many tasks; so she
came to him and asked, “Lord, do you not
care that my sister has left me to do all the
work by myself? Tell her then to help me.”
But the Lord answered her, “Martha,
Martha, you are worried and distracted by
many things; there is need of only one
thing. Mary has chosen the better part,
which will not be taken away from her.”
