Galatians 1: 13- 24

1:13For you have heard of my former behavior within Judaism: that, beyond measure, I persecuted the Church of God and fought against Her.
1:14And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my equals among my own kind, having proven to be more abundant in zeal toward the traditions of my fathers.
1:15But, when it pleased him who, from my mother’s womb, had set me apart, and who has called me by his grace,
1:16to reveal his Son within me, so that I might evangelize him among the Gentiles, I did not next seek the consent of flesh and blood.
1:17Neither did I go to Jerusalem, to those who were Apostles before me. Instead, I went into Arabia, and next I returned to Damascus.
1:18And then, after three years, I went to Jerusalem to see Peter; and I stayed with him for fifteen days.
1:19But I saw none of the other Apostles, except James, the brother of the Lord.
1:20Now what I am writing to you: behold, before God, I am not lying.
1:21Next, I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
1:22But I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea, which were in Christ.
1:23For they had only heard that: “He, who formerly persecuted us, now evangelizes the faith which he once fought.”
1:24And they glorified God in me.

Luke 10: 38- 42

10:38Now it happened that, while they were traveling, he entered into a certain town. And a certain woman, named Martha, received him into her home.
10:39And she had a sister, named Mary, who, while sitting beside the Lord’s feet, was listening to his word.
10:40Now Martha was continually busying herself with serving. And she stood still and said: “Lord, is it not a concern to you that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore, speak to her, so that she may help me.”
10:41And the Lord responded by saying to her: “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled over many things.
10:42And yet only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the best portion, and it shall not be taken away from her.”
