MARTHA AND MARY 

In the Church, there are two kinds of life, the active and the contemplative. The active life is lower and the contemplative life is higher. 

The active life is such that it begins and ends on earth.

The contemplative life, however, may indeed begin on earth, but it will continue without end into eternity. This is because the contemplative life is Mary's part which shall never be taken away. 

The active life is troubled and busy about many things, but the contemplative life sits in peace with the one thing necessary.
