32nd SUNDAY (B) November 11, 2018

1 Kings: 17:10-16; Psalm 146; Hebrews 9: 24-28; Mark 12: 38-44

by Jude Siciliano, OP

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

From today’s Gospel reading:

"A poor widow also came and put in two small coins

worth a few cents."

Reflection:

Jesus notes the rich donating money from their surplus, while the poor widow "from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood." The Greek literally says the widow "gave her whole life." Since this passage comes before the passion, Jesus’ words take on special meaning for disciples who, like the widow, are asked to give their all to follow him.

So we ask ourselves:

  • Are we aware of the living conditions of the poor around us and the causes of their poverty?

  • What can I and my church community do to address these conditions and improve the welfare of the poor?
