St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church
In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us to take time out from our busy schedules to listen to His word through the Bible, Sacraments, and daily devotions.
Nowadays, travelers do not just show up at your door and ask you for food, drink, or if they can stay the night. In biblical times, this wasn’t the case. Imagine being required by social norms to allow strangers seeking room and board into your house. You would be expected to let travelers in, serve them meals, and attend to their needs while they stayed at your home. Being constantly prepared to welcome travelers was part of the culture.
Today’s Gospel is about being prepared to welcome guests. Mary and Martha welcomed Jesus into their home. Both sisters start with good intentions. They welcome Jesus with honor and joy. After Jesus is made welcome and comfortable, Martha is doing all the work, perhaps making sure He has plenty of food and drink. Instead of helping Martha, Mary just sits down and listens to Jesus.
