The Better Part

“There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” – Luke 10:42

I have often been more Mary than Martha. Prayer time is a priority for me. Or at least it was. Since this pandemic thing took control of our lives, my prayer life has actually suffered. Considering I have a lot more quiet time, being confined to home, and considering there are more things and many people to pray for these days, this makes no sense to me.

So now I concentrate on changing things. I pray the breviary at least twice a day. I have silent prayer time daily. I read more reflections. And I try to write reflections on a more regular basis.

It feels good to pray more. I feel more like myself and I feel closer to Jesus.

It is definitely the better part.
