The Better Part

No homily to post for you today, since Bishop LaValley is preaching here as Malone bids a fond farewell to the Ursuline Sisters who are leaving our community after 118 years of service (1898-2016).

 Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time   C 

A point to ponder: What sort of welcome do we give to the Lord?  Notice, it's not would we give but do we give, since Jesus keeps paying us visit after visit: in his word, in the sacraments (above all, the Eucharist), in the faces of the poor.  Whether our hospitality is more active (like Martha) or more contemplative (like Mary), is Christ the center of our attention?
