REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS - “Mary Has Chosen the Good Portion” – (Luke 10:38-42) Life is not without choices; the consequences of these choices leave us in either pain or happiness. The choices we make are informed by our priorities in life. Therefore, the reason for most pains in life is misplaced priorities. When Jesus visits the house of Mary and Martha, Martha chooses to do the running around while Jesus is speaking and teaching. Mary chooses to just sit and listen. Jesus says Mary has made the right choice. Listening is a skill and as well as a gift. God speaks to us each day in the daily events of our lives. However, very often we get so busy that we don’t hear Him speak to us. We miss His clues and daily messages for us in the pursuit of other priorities. ‘Lord, give us the ears to hear You speak to us and the heart to accept what You teach us.’
