Mk 12:38-44

The humility and fidelity of the widow stands in sharp contrast to the hypocrisy of the scribes. Their religiosity is superficial, intended to draw attention to themselves. The widow willingly gives all that she has, a clear sign of her absolute dependence on God. Her action is what it means to be “poor in spirit”.

I pray for the courage to let go and give to others in the same way and in the same spirit as the widow.
