Dear Family of Mary!
I have been a little sick the past few days, and so I haven’t been able to keep up with the reflections. I am sorry. But there has been a gift in it. I have had a little more time to pray!!
The Gospel today adds some light:
Jesus entered a village
where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.
She had a sister named Mary
who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said,
“Lord, do you not care
that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving?
Tell her to help me.”
The Lord said to her in reply,
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.
There is need of only one thing.
Mary has chosen the better part
and it will not be taken from her.”
The better part! Time with Jesus in prayer is always the better part. I see people all over Medjugorje enjoying the better part. Prayer. Prayer. Prayer…
Know that I will be praying for all of you as we enjoy our last few days in Medjugorje.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. We made an attempt to climb Apparition Hill with Franjo on Friday, and only got to Second Station due to rain. But it was worth it! Here he explains the power of the Visitation. Indeed, Medjugorje is a new Visitation for all of us. “How is it that the mother of my Lord should come to me?”
