Gospel text (Lk 10,38-42): He entered a village and a woman called Martha welcomed him to her house. She had a sister named Mary who sat down at the Lord's feet to listen to his words. Martha, meanwhile, was busy with all the serving... As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, He entered a village and a woman called Martha welcomed him to her house. She had a sister named Mary who sat down at the Lord's feet to listen to his words. Martha, meanwhile, was busy with all the serving and finally she said, «Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do all the serving?». But the Lord answered, «Martha, Martha, you worry and are troubled about many things, whereas only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the better part, and it will not be taken away from her».

Today we live in the "high speed" era, we are riding in a permanent “speed car racing”. That has its risks: not everyone is trained for it. We run so much that we don’t even know where are we going. That's why some people fail and gets exhausted and / or depressed.

«Martha, Martha, you worry and are troubled about many things, whereas only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the better part... ». What is your choice? Do you also have a "racing car"?

Monsignor José Angel Saiz Meneses (until now Bishop of Terrassa) was the first bishop who agreed to collaborate with evangeli.net. He has just been promoted as Archbishop of Seville. The comment for next Sunday ("Good Shepherd Sunday") was written precisely by Monsignor Saiz.
