St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 8

"Only one thing is necessary." (Luke 10:41)

Martha is angry that Mary is not helping prepare the meal for Jesus and his friends, but Jesus upholds her right to listen to him, to think about ideas and to develop her mind. That is the one necessary thing for us all - to open our minds and be prepared to embrace the mystery at the heart of the universe, recognising that human life points beyond itself to God.

Lord, help us to be open and prepared for mystery, to rejoice in the life of the mind and the imagination, and so to see your presence at the centre of all things. Amen.
