May these “Martha’s task” be pleasing to you, Lord Jesus, as I prepare this space for the worship of this community.  Let me put on a “Mary attitude,” being ever glad to be in your presence in these small jobs which ready us for the celebration.  And finally, give me, O God, heartfelt joy as I go about my tasks together with those around me.  Blessed be your Holy Name.  Amen.
