Saint(s) of the day : St Rafka, Confessor


Commentary of the day : Saint Ambrose
Martha and Mary are welcoming the Wisdom of God together (1Co 1,24)

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 10,38-42.
Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home.
She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying.
But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me.’
But the Lord answered her, ‘Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things;
there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.’
