Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Generosity” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed through the Parable of the “Widow’s Mite” that true “generosity” is measured by the extent to which one is willing to share, in proportion to the total wealth one possesses. Ponder on, “How grateful are we to God and sharing His abundant blessings?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the treasury, and many of the rich put in a great deal.
A poor widow came and put in two small coins, the equivalent of a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, ‘I tell you solemnly, this poor widow has put more in than all who have contributed to the treasury; for they have all put in money they had over, but she from the little she had has put in everything she possessed, all she had to live on.’
