Reading 3, Tit 3: 1-7 : Practise the Christian Lifestyle

1Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for any honest work,
2to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all men.
3For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by men and hating one another;
4but when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,
5he saved us, not because of deeds done by us in righteousness, but in virtue of his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit,
6which he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.

Gospel, Lk 10: 38-42 : Mary has selected the good part.

38Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house.
39And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching.
40But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me."
41But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;
42one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."
