DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Friends of Jesus” – Faith: In today’s Gospel event, Jesus reminds us of our need to deepen our relationship with Him in personal and intimate ways.  Ponder on, “Why was Mary praised, while Martha who was doing good, but not the preferred choice?  Are we also busy doing things that will not deepen our relationship with Jesus?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 10:38-42

Jesus came to a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. She had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the Lord’s feet and listened to him speaking.

Now Martha, who was distracted with all the serving said, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister is leaving me to do the serving all by myself? Please tell her to help me.’

But the Lord answered, ‘Martha, Martha,’ he said, ‘you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part, it is not to be taken from her.’
