Gospel for the 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Luke 10:38-42

Summary: Martha, busy with serving, asked Jesus to tell Mary to help her. Jesus said Mary chose the better part by listening to him, and it won't be taken from her.

Martha and Mary

Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.

She had a sister named Mary who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.

Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.”

The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”
