Today’s Gospel is a well known story about Mary and Martha. These two women have become more
than historical figures. They have become symbols of two different kinds of religion.
Martha represents the people who are activists. Their religion is a matter of work. Mary, on the other
hand, represents the mystics. Their religion is largely a matter of meditation and contemplation.

Picture yourself at the home of Martha and Mary when Jesus visited. Where would you have been?
In the kitchen with Martha? Or at the feet of Jesus with Mary?

Where should you be? A very insightful answer was given in the sixteenth century, by Saint Teresa
of Avila. She said, “To give the Lord a perfect hospitality, it is necessary that Mary and Martha be
joined as one.”

Some time today reflect on the Martha and Mary dynamics and your relationship with others. As you
do, remember your life has two aspects - the active and the appreciative. With one, we get things done.
With the other, we see into things and understand them. The one is effort. The other is insight. Effort
alone tends to break life into its separate parts. Insight tends to make life whole and complete.

Pray that you will be able to see the importance of both and then ask the Holy Spirit for the grace to
do both and keep the right balance.
                                                   In Christ, Mary & St. Elizabeth Ann Seton,

                     The Rectory Office will be closed on Mondays for the month of July.

                           BOYS AND GIRLS: HELP WANTED
 Our parish needs boys and girls who are willing to serve the Lord at the altar. Boys and girls, if you are
going into fourth grade or higher this September, you are eligible to serve. Altar assignments are once every
two or three weeks. If your family always goes to the same mass, we can even schedule you for that mass
time only.

If you are interested, please call the rectory leave your name and phone number, or send me an email to I plan to have a training session at the end of August. If that time is not
convenient for you,

let us know when you call or write. Being an Altar Server is a great honor and brings you closer to Jesus.
Please join us and may God Bless you!

                                      FOCUS ON THE PARISH
Married couples are called to a mutual and perfect hospitality. But at times in married life we see an
imbalance in the Martha/Mary dynamic. When a couple marries, at first the Mary dynamic is prominent.
Each is attentive to the other. But later as they settle down the Martha side of the couple tends to takes
charge of the marriage. The husband becomes engrossed in his work and the woman in hers.

Slowly but surely, activity takes the place of appreciation. If either one brings this up, the other becomes
defensive. The husband might say, “I provide a good living for you, don’t I? What more do you want?” The
wife might say, “I keep a clean house. I take care of the children. What more do you want?”

What is happening to this couple is that their work oriented roles have crowded out the central meaning of
their commitment. There is too much Martha and not enough Mary. There is too much effort and not enough
understanding. This imbalance brings much heartbreak which can only be repaired by a large and sustain
dose of the Mary dynamic.

But in bringing balance back to a relationship the couple must keep in mind and then heed St. Teresa of
Avila’s advice:“To give the Lord a perfect hospitality, it is necessary that Mary and Martha be joined as

Speaking of married couples July 25th marks the 42nd anniversary of Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humane Vitae.
It is an excellent letter and sets forth in clear terms the church’s position on contraception and being open
to life. I would urge all married couples to read it as well as all couples who are planning to marry.
                                                                Father Mike

                                         DEACON’S CORNER
Today, we listen to the story of Jesus’ visit with Martha and Mary. A guest shows up, probably
unexpectedly, and the hostess, Martha, knocks herself out trying to do everything at once. The guest, Jesus,
sits down and makes himself at home. The sister of the hostess, Mary, sits with Jesus, and listens
thoughtfully. When Martha complains that she is doing all the work, Jesus tells her that she has forgotten the
most important thing. She has neglected to listen to Jesus, whose words are more nourishing than any meal.

        I think for most of our lives, we are a combination of Martha and Mary. Even cloistered monks and
nuns, devoted to lives of prayer, have hours of work every day. However, if our lives are all-Martha-all-the-
time, they may be out of balance. We may be missing "the better part." There is an ironic joke that goes:
"At the time of death, no one says, 'I wish I had spent more time at the office.' "

         The Catechism of the Catholic Church, in its discussion of observing Sunday as a day of worship
and rest, declares, "Traditional activities (sports, restaurants, etc.) and social necessities (public services, etc.)
require some people to work on Sundays, but everyone should still take care to set aside sufficient time for
leisure" (Catechism, 2187). Most people in our country are working more hours a week than ever before.
Financially, we may think we need to work as much as we can, but how does this affect our families, spouse
or children? This week, let’s try to put more Mary-like listening into our lives. Let’s make more time to
listen to our families, friends and most especially, to Jesus! Have a blessed week. Deacon Steve
