38 Now it happened that, while they were traveling, he entered into a certain town. And a certain woman, named Martha, received him into her home.
39 And she had a sister, named Mary, who, while sitting beside the Lord's feet, was listening to his word.
40 Now Martha was continually busying herself with serving. And she stood still and said: "Lord, is it not a concern to you that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore, speak to her, so that she may help me."
41 And the Lord responded by saying to her: "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled over many things.
42 And yet only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the best portion, and it shall not be taken away from her."
24 For now I rejoice in my passion on your behalf, and I complete in my flesh the things that are lacking in the Passion of Christ, for the sake of his body, which is the Church.
25 For I have become a minister of the Church, according to the dispensation of God that has been given to me among you, so that I may fulfill the Word of God,
26 the mystery which had remained hidden to past ages and generations, but which now is manifested to his saints.
27 To them, God willed to made known the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ and the hope of his glory within you.
28 We are announcing him, correcting every man and teaching every man, with all wisdom, so that we may offer every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
