THEME: We must give to God until we have given enough.
Gospel: Mark 12:41-44
Jesus sat down opposite the treasury
and observed how the crowd put money
into the treasury.
Many rich people put in large sums.
A poor widow also came and put in
two small coins worth a few cents.
Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them,“Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more
than all the other contributors to the treasury.
For they have all contributed
from their surplus wealth,
but she, from her poverty,
has contributed all she had,
her whole livelihood.”
