Sorry for the earlier mix-up.

Galatians 1: 13-24

1:13 For you have heard of my former behavior within Judaism: that, beyond measure, I persecuted the Church of God and fought against Her.

1:14 And 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.

1:15 But, when it pleased him who, from my mother’s womb, had set me apart, and who has called me by his grace,

1:16 to 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.

1:17 Neither did I go to Jerusalem, to those who were Apostles before me. Instead, I went into Arabia, and next I returned to Damascus.

1:18 And then, after three years, I went to Jerusalem to see Peter; and I stayed with him for fifteen days.

1:19 But I saw none of the other Apostles, except James, the brother of the Lord.

1:20 Now what I am writing to you: behold, before God, I am not lying.

1:21 Next, I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.

1:22 But I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea, which were in Christ.

1:23 For they had only heard that: “He, who formerly persecuted us, now evangelizes the faith which he once fought.”

1:24 And they glorified God in me.

The Holy Gospel According to Luke    10: 38-42

10:38 Now it happened that, while they were traveling, he entered into a certain town. And a certain woman, named Martha, received him into her home.
10:39 And she had a sister, named Mary, who, while sitting beside the Lord’s feet, was listening to his word.
10:40 Now 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.”
10:41 And the Lord responded by saying to her: “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled over many things.
10:42 And yet only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the best portion, and it shall not be taken away from her.”
