Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Hello Everyone,

Evelyn here,

Below is the scripture reading for last week's Mass, the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.


LUKE 10:38-42

Jesus entered a village
where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.
She had a sister named Mary
who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said,
“Lord, do you not care
that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving?
Tell her to help me.”
The Lord said to her in reply,
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.
There is need of only one thing.
Mary has chosen the better part
and it will not be taken from her.”
and it will not be taken from her.”

Artist Bio:

James Jacques Tissot has quickly become one of my favorite artists and a few
months ago, I featured his work on the BTCC Youth Ministry. Tissot was famous
 for his exquisite paintings of beautiful English women and most people think
he was English. In fact, Jacques-Joseph Tissot was born October 15, 1836 in
Nantes, then a thriving port on the Loire estuary in western France. He
adopted the name James as an anglicized form when living in England. His
friends wereManet and Degas, with whom he shared a teacher in the painting
 school in Paris. From 1885 until his death on August 8, 1902, he becamevery
religious and spent the last 17 years living as recluse painting religious
