Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
October 8, 2019 – Tuesday
Gospel: Luke 10:38-42
“Martha, Martha, do not be anxious and worried about so many things.”
We see here Martha as the active part of our persona and Mary as the contemplative one. We can’t choose simply by being one and not be concerned with the other part. We choose to be both at the same time: we all need to work yet attend to our spiritual needs, thus a balance is required.
Working is a form of prayer if we offer our chores and tasks to the Lord, performing at our best always. We pray that our financial needs are met, we pray that our business or job meet our family’s needs, we seek God’s guidance in every task that is demanded of us.
We pray that we are continualy close to the Lord and not be led away from this relationship.
