God, an Endearing Equal

        Today is the Memorial of St. Martha. In the Gospel reading from Luke 10, Martha came to Jesus and complained, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me." To me, the fact that we can address the Lord as an endearing equal is due to the fact that he did come into the world as one of us, making a direct connection with us.
