Reading 1 – Galatians 1.13-24

Brothers and sisters:
For you have heard of my way of life in time past in the Jewish religion,
how I, beyond measure, persecuted the assembly of God and ravaged it.
I advanced in the Jewish religion beyond many of my own age among my countrymen,
being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.

But when it was the good pleasure of God to reveal his Son to me,
having set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me through his grace,
that I might preach him among the Gentiles,
I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,
nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were Apostles before me,
but I went away into Arabia. Then I returned to Damascus.
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Kephas.
I stayed with him fifteen days,
but of the other Apostles I saw no one except James, the brother of the Lord.
Now about the things which I write to you.
Behold, before God, I am not lying.

Then I came to the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
I was still unknown by face to the Churches of Judea which are in Christ,
but they only heard:
“He who once persecuted us now preaches the faith that he once tried to destroy.”
And they glorified God because of me.

Responsorial – Psalm 139.1b-3, 13-14ab, 14c-15 Resp. 24b

R. Lead me, Lord, in the eternal way.

O Lord, you have searched me and known me;
you know my sitting down and my rising up.
You understood my thoughts from afar;
my resting and my rising you have searched out.
And you have understood all my ways.

R. Lead me, Lord, in the eternal way.

For you formed my inmost being.
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful.

R. Lead me, Lord, in the eternal way.

My soul you know very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was made in secret,
woven together in the depths of the earth.

R. Lead me, Lord, in the eternal way.

Gospel – Luke 10.38-42

Jesus entered a certain village
where there was a woman named Martha who received him into her house.
She had a sister named Mary, who also sat at the Lord’s feet, and listened to his word.
But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she came up to him, and said,
“Lord, do you not care that my sister left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me then.”
Jesus answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things.
Only one thing is necessary.
Mary has chosen the good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
