E48 – Martha and Maria
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke X, 41 – 42)
In the foreground Mary worships Jesus. An anxious and active Martha urges cooperation to serve the banquet.
This engraving was drawn in Chile, but Delhez did not engrave it until later in Totoral (Argentina). This work was made between the 24th of January and 12th of April 1938.
