Mary and Martha

Tuesday of 27th week, based on Luke 10:38-42

Now as they 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.”

About Peter Murnane, O.P.

Born in Western Victoria, Australia, 1940. Dominican Friar, have worked in Dominican Formation, in universities, parishes and currently on the Dominican Preaching Team around Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia. For those who enjoy cycling, or see that it is today perhaps ecologically necessary for most of us to get back on our bikes, consider it as a possible way of preaching! In 2005 I enjoyed making a bike pilgrimage for reconciliation between us White Australians and the Aboriginal people, riding 2,700km from Canberra the federal capital, to Uluru in the centre of the continent.
