16 cThis Sunday, two of our scripture readings, GN 18:1-10a), and the Gospel Lk 10:38-42,  illustrate the importance of hospitality. Abraham welcomes visitors to his tent in our First Reading. He provides water to bathe their feet, rest and a special meal.

In the Gospel, Jesus is visiting Martha and Mary where he is welcome. Mary sits listening to Jesus while Martha is preparing the meal. Martha is upset that Mary is not helping in the kitchen. In fact, Mary’s behavior is shocking in terms of the society norms of Jesus’ day, and even today in parts of the Middle East. Mary, a woman, is a marginalized person in that society. As a woman, Mary would be expected, like Martha, to prepare hospitality for a guest, and since there was not another male present Mary was not supposed to speak with the guest. But to Luke. Jesus is not just another guest; he is the Son of God. Old boundaries do not apply. Luke shows us how Jesus demonstrated a radical openness to women and to people who were outcasts in society. And in doing so, Luke teaches his community the priority of listening to the Word of God. And Jesus says to Martha, “You are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part…”

This Gospel is a challenge to our present day Christian community to get our priorities straight. Does our hospitality transcend boundaries? What superficial concerns keep us from listening to Jesus? In everything, let us learn from Martha and Mary to choose the better part.
