Weekly Message:

SIXTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
July 17, 2016
          However, the Martha and Mary story shows that sometimes the action can be misdirected and undertaken in a way that makes us lose sight of what really matters. We have to be careful here, because Jesus is not telling Martha that her work is not important, nor is he commending Mary for doing nothing. He is simply reminding his followers that if we want to serve him we must first listen to him — we need to be people of prayer before we can be people of action. Otherwise our actions can just be about us and it is possible to do good things for all kinds of bad reasons like, for example, our need to be needed or our exaggerated belief in the importance of our own contribution. Such behavior can easily undermine the message of the good news which must always be about Jesus and his kingdom. ‘The mystery is Christ among you.’ The word mystery is sometimes used as a way of avoiding having to work something out or even reflect on it. Paul, however, never used it in that way. For him Christ reveals the mystery of God, he does not hide it and so if we want to know God we must try to recognize the presence of Christ around us. As with Abraham in the first reading God may be coming to us as the one in need. If our hearts are not generous and welcoming, how often have we turned God away and in turn failed to experience the generosity he wants to bestow on us? Martha and Mary can also teach us something about recognizing the Christ among us. They remind us that sometimes we need to ‘waste’ some time just being attentive, listening prayerfully to his words.
