    Your post made me think of a poem:

    “The Sons of Mary seldom bother, for they have inherited that good part;
    But the Sons of Martha favour their Mother of the careful soul and troubled heart.
    And because she lost her temper once, and because she was rude to the Lord her Guest,
    Her Sons must wait upon Mary’s Sons, world without end, reprieve, or rest.”

    – Kipling (you can find the rest of the poem here: http://tricolour.net/som.html )

  2. Love this, Lisa! Reminds me of a blog post I read a few months back that said it´s not so much what you do, but how you “be”. We´ll pray for you to find peace and get it all done. You and Joel really are a great example and inspiration to us.

  3. Gus Lloyd had a great reflection on St. Martha this morning. He pointed out Martha is well-known for her complaint to Jesus against her sister´s “laziness”. However, how many of us remember her great confession of faith when asking Jesus to raise her brother Lazarus, who had died? From the alternate Gospel reading, “I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God.” http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/072913.cfm
