“Mary and Martha” or “The good Housekeeper” by the artist Hofmann was given in memory of Eugene Cusick, who lived from 1886 to 1904. He was the brother of Charles Cusick. As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him in her home. She had a sister named Mary who sat down at the feet of the Lord and listened to his teaching. Martha was upset over all the work she had to do, so she came and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!” The Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha! You are worried and troubled over so many things, but just one is needed. Mary has chosen the right thing and it will not be taken away from her!” Luke 10:38-42
