Lucky to serve with St. Martha

Let them recall that it is necessary for someone to prepare His meal & let them consider themselves lucky to serve with Saint Martha. Let them consider how true humility consists very much in great readiness to be content with whatever the Lord may want to do with them.

  1. Wow, this is good. Reminds me of what someone said about not wasting time hankering after other people’s vocations. It’s so tempting to think someone else’s service is better than mine.
