The name RISEN CHRIST expresses in a better way the unique character of the Easter event. We believe in a Risen Christ. We believe that He is alive and that we have a relationship with God through Him. Our Church stands as a permanent witness to such a faith.

SUNDAY REFLECTIONS

The better part

21 July 2019 ( Sixteen Sunday in Ordinary Time )

[ Genesis 18:1-10a ] [ Colossians 1:24-28 ] [ Luke 10:38-42 ]

Another famous story of Martha & Mary, two sisters doing the complete opposite. Martha, busy with the doing (some may say overdoing), while Mary was deemed by Jesus to have chosen to do “the better part”. Which do we connect with most? Are we prone to be like Martha, so engrossed in the doing? Perhaps it’s because it’s easier to measure the doing, it’s quantifiable. It’s so much more complex to measure how much we’ve really listened and heard or understood another. Isn’t it easier to just send our children to the myriads of tuition centres, buy them assessment books after assessment books, versus sitting down with them to truly understand what’s happening in their daily life? Buy gifts and bigger gifts as a measure of providing for our loved ones, forgetting about providing guidance or a chance to talk about making crucial life choices. How often do we sit at our loved one’s feet and listen? We run around from one task to the next, but how much time have we spent praying and listening quietly to what Jesus wants us to hear?
