MEMORIAL OF SAINTS MARTHA, MARY, AND LAZARUS, JULY 29, 2021



A Gospel according to Lk 10:38-42


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.”


REFLECTION:

"Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him."


How awesome it must have been to be a good friend of Jesus during His lifetime. He would come to your house, and hang out and spend some time with you and your family. Of course there was an entourage, and I can sympathize with Martha. It is not like they had paper plates and "take out" back in the day.


I do ask myself what do friendships mean to Jesus, that He sought and had them?


What is the lesson He is giving us here?


What are our friends to us? What do they do for us? What do we do for them?


In our PAPA family we seek to be close to Jesus, and to support each other every step of the way.


We all come from very different backgrounds, ethnicities, and even countries. We are united in the desire for our priests to be holy, our love of the Eucharist, and that search of being friends of Jesus.


I invite you to explore our website www. PAPAMio.org, and contact us at PAPA@PAPAMio.org to learn more about us, the prayers we say every day, and events we continuously organize for our members to enrich the experience of being part of the PAPA Family.


God bless y'all!
