Reading 3, Phil 1:12-18 : Proclaim the gospel without fear.

 

12 I want you to know, brethren, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel,
13 so that it has become known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ;
14 and most of the brethren have been made confident in the Lord because of my imprisonment, and are much more bold to speak the word of God without fear.
15 Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will.
16 The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel;
17 the former proclaim Christ out of partisanship, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.
18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in that I rejoice.


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

 

38 Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house.
39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching.
40 But 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."
41 But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;
42 one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."
