Monday Meme: The Need to be More Like Mary
Yesterday's Gospel always gets under my skin, but I'm glad that it does. Every time I hear the story of Mary and Martha, it seems as though the timing is perfect. I'm usually in need of a reminder that I can actually be a better wife, a better mom, a better friend if I spend time with Jesus first. The grace that Jesus gives us through the sacraments is by far more life-giving than an extra 5 minutes straightening the living room or putting toys away. Neither of those tasks is intrinsically bad, but Jesus is reminding us that we need to prioritize. Boy oh boy, do I need that reminder sometimes!
