The 100th Time I Heard Martha and Mary

Martha and Mary.

Heard it for what must be the hundredth time in today's Gospel.  

The first ninety-nine times I asked what on earth Martha must have been thinking ... fussing about such trivial matters while Jesus was right there in her midst.  

The one-hundredth time I realized I was her.

God Bless.

The thing is, Michael, no matter how prayerful and faithful we might be (or try to be) we always get preoccupied with the minutea of life, especially when things go wrong. I know it's true about me. I hope HE understands and forgives.

God bless you for a great reminder of who we are.
