We present here the text that will be read at Sunday mass, the 16th Sunday of Ordinary Time, and we formulate some questions that might help us prepare to hear the reading.


38 Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to what he was saying. 40 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."

41 But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; 42 there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her."

- What is the only thing that we need?

- How am I sometimes like Martha?

- How can I be more like Mary?
