Évangile de Jésus Christ selon saint

Luc 10,38-42.


Chemin faisant, Jésus entra dans un village. Une femme nommée Marthe le reçut.
Elle avait une sœur appelée Marie qui, s’étant assise aux pieds du Seigneur, écoutait sa parole.
Quant à Marthe, elle était accaparée par les multiples occupations du service. Elle intervint et dit : « Seigneur, cela ne te fait rien que ma sœur m’ait laissé faire seule le service ? Dis-lui donc de m’aider. »
Le Seigneur lui répondit : « Marthe, Marthe, tu te donnes du souci et tu t’agites pour bien des choses.
Une seule est nécessaire. Marie a choisi la meilleure part, elle ne lui sera pas enlevée. »

Le message

Marthe et Marie nous rappellent l’importance et l’essentiel de la vie chrétienne. Marthe représente les activités caritatives, et Marie représente la contemplation. Le monde accueilli facilement tout ce qui est visible, pourtant c’est l’invisible qui est la causalité de tout ce qui est visible. La sagesse nous aidera à découvrir la vérité. Pourtant le Seigneur a bien reconnu tout ce que Marthe a fait. Nous avons besoin de deux. S’il y a un choix, la contemplation doit prendre la priorité, non pas les activités caritatives, car sans contemplation, il y un grand risque de se perdre dans les activités en oubliant le Seigneur qui nous y envoie.

In English

Scripture: Luke 10:38-42

38 Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me." 41 But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; 42 one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."

The message

Sometime many of us are confused with different priorities in our Christian life. Jesus is helping us to discern better by choosing Mary, certainly not ignoring Martha. Why this preference, while Martha is very much engaged in service? We all agree and recognize that the Church members are called to serve the poor and the needy, particularly be a Good Samaritan to our neighbours.

Since God see the heart not what we do, it is important to realize the force behind of our charity. People who engage their life for charity and remain poor in their relationship with God, the same charity may end up in separating us from the Lord. The great risk is that one day we will certainly forget not only the mission entrusted to us, but also the Person who sends us in mission, Jesus Christ.

To send, we should learn to listen. How to proceed without listening the Lord. Jesus is inviting us to listen to Him like Mary and engage later in the mission like Martha. Jesus was well aware the importance of service, but the best is to establish a sincere relationship with the source of all charity.
