     ROCKFORD DIOCESE


Vocation Corner

“In our Gospel reading this Sunday, we encounter the familiar story of Jesus spending time with His friends Martha and Mary.  We can easily understand the rationale behind the way that both of the sisters acted during their time with Him.  On the one hand, Martha wants to do everything she can to serve Jesus while He is there so that His visit is a pleasant one.  On the other, Mary understands the value of spending time with her guest and making His stay enjoyable in that way.  While both of these are good instincts, it is important for us to notice that Jesus tells us that one is better than the other.  He says that Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.  Jesus wants Martha to realize that even though He appreciates her service to Him in that moment, what He really desires is for her to spend time with Him.  This is a lesson that is valuable for all of us, especially in our modern world.  Our society places so much value on busyness and doing things that is easy to forget to slow down and spend time with the ones we love.  In particular, it is easy to forget to spend that quiet time listening to the one we should love the most, Jesus Himself.  Spending time in silence with Jesus has to be at the top of our list when it comes to ways to discern His Will.  If we do not shut out all of the noise and distractions at times, then we will never be able to hear the whispering voice of Christ when it comes to us.  Let us all make the effort to imitate Mary and sit at the feet of Jesus to spend time with Him and listen for His voice.  It is in doing so that we will grow in familiarity with Him and be able to better understand what He calls us to in life. ”

Fr. Robert Gonnella
