Busyness over many things is, in all its forms, chiefly a poison




Have survived to the holidays, who knows, might get a chance to post again...


The picture above from Quarr Abbey shows Our Lord with St Mary and St Martha, whose memorial the Church celebrates today. The altar piece depicts the account given in Luke 10:38-42, wherein Martha rebukes Mary for not helping her in serving Christ at the table but the Lord responds: "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things. But only a few things are necessary, really only one. For Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."
