Jesus had a special esteem for Mary, the sister of Martha, and enjoyed her vibrant relationship with him, her eager spirit of listening.

While we feel sorry for Martha, being left to do the household work on her own, it’s clear that Jesus appreciated Mary’s listening spirit.

Our attentiveness to him must not be eclipsed by our mundane daily bustling about.

Then we have St Paul’s reflection about how the Word of God, hidden from all mankind for centuries, was received by those who eagerly listened to it.

We need to make space for God in our lives, to listen for it at some time each day, and to pray the Holy Spirit to be our guide.
