Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 10:38-42
 
Jesus knows the difficulties and struggles in our life and wants to help us. What does He mean when He says Mary has chosen the better part?       
 
Gospel                                      Luke 20:38-42
 
Jesus entered a village 
where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.
She had a sister named Mary
who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. 
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said,
“Lord, do you not care
that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? 
Tell her to help me.” 
The Lord said to her in reply,
“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.”
