Sixteenth Sunday In Ordinary Time

“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.”  We can replace our name with Martha’s and imagine how easily Jesus could comment on how we concern ourselves with things that do not matter.  Take a moment to close your eyes and be with the Lord to discern what is important.  Today we have a chance to choose “the better part,” and to be led to this better place, be it at the Lord’s feet or another place.
