Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Generosity” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus praises the poor widow who puts into the treasury all that she has to live on; her two coins. This is in contrast to the rich who gave their loose change. Ponder on, “Do I share only my ‘leftover money, time and talents’ like the “rich” in the Gospel episode or do I give till it ‘hurts’?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus looked up, he saw rich people putting their offerings into the treasury; and he noticed a poverty-stricken widow putting in two small coins, and he said, ‘I tell you truly, this poor widow has put in more than any of them; for these have all put in money they could spare, but she in her poverty has put in all she had to live on.’
