Being Martha & Mary

“Christianity does not ask the modern woman to be exclusively a Martha or a Mary; the choice is not between a professional career and contemplation, for the Church reads the Gospel of Martha and Mary…to symbolize that she combines both the speculative and the practical, the serving of the Lord and the sitting at His Feet.”

— Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, The World’s First Love: Mary, Mother of God
