You Know You're in the Active Religious Life When...

I had a day off from parish Masses this morning, so I went to concelebrate with the brothers at the old friars' home.

In honor of the feast of Elizabeth Seton, we heard Luke's account of Martha and Mary:
"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."

For the homily, the presiding friar simply said, "I can't believe that after this beautiful theological proclamation, the Lord didn't turn to Mary and say, 'O.k., now help your sister.'"
