Martha, Mary, and Jesus. weaving action and contemplation in daily life. Published 1992 by Liturgical Press in Collegeville, Minn.

Yet true interior silence does not allow you to take sides. There are no sides to take and only a wholeness to rest in-which frees us to act on behalf of love. When was the last time you found yourself in a battle of words, insisting on your own rightness? What might happen next time if you allow silence to break through your sense of superiority?

Jesus at the home of Martha and Mary (also referred to as Christ in the House of Martha and by other variant names) refers to an episode in the life of Jesus which appears only in Luke's Gospel (Luke 10:38–42).

Jesus at the home of Martha and Mary (also referred to as Christ in the House of Martha and by other variant names) refers to an episode in the life of Jesus which appears only in Luke's Gospel (Luke 10:38–42), and can be read immediately after the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25–37). Jesus visits the home of Lazarus, Martha and Mary of Bethany, the latter typically conflated in Catholic medieval tradition with Mary Magdalene, though the New Testament probably means a different person.

This book invites us to join in the chorus of daily communion with Christ, despite the pressures that threaten to silence us. Consider it as sheet music for your soul yet you struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy. Then comes Jesus, right into the midst of your busy Mary/Martha life-and he extends the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters of Bethany. This is a great book and will definitely lead to some life changes if you take it to heart. The author does an excellent job of taking you through her own personal journey.

Martha busied herself with the necessary household preparations, while Mary simply sat at Jesus’ feet and listened. I’m the kind of person who can see both sides of every issue.

Then comes Jesus, right into the midst of your busy Mary/Martha life-and he. .Every little word can take on a hidden meaning. Each action can turn into a personal attack. When we look for injustice, we usually find it.

Then comes Jesus, right into the midst of your busy Mary/Martha life-and he extends the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters of Bethany. This powerful book details the differences between Martha and Mary, the two sisters of Lazarus in the bible. Martha is described as the original Martha Stewart, the New Testament’s Proverbs 31 woman, and Israel’s answer to Betty Crocker.

Which is better: the active or the contemplative life? The story of Martha and Mary calls this question to mind, but is the whole answer to be found there? This text explores how the conventionally polarized attributes of these New Testament sisters—action for Martha and contemplation for Mary—may be seen as a healing unity in the light of Jesus' teaching. Models for weaving this unity in our own lives include scriptural exegesis, journaling dialogues, affirmations, and exercise developing theological imagination. The work provides companion meditations for those who yearn to connect daily life with God's centering presence.
