Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
November 11, 2018 - Sunday
Gospel: Mark 12: 38-44
"she gave from her poverty, and put in everything she had, her very living." Mark 12: 44
When we consider something as our god, we store it up, keep it the way we want, but it will never be enough, it will never satisfy us.
Today's gospel talks about the widow who has given everything she had. Her act of giving means a deep faith and trust in God's providence. She gives everything because she trusts that God will take care of her.
Jesus today invites us to give our all, it can be our time, talents, treasure, love, peace, mercy, forgiveness, joy, happiness to Him with the hope and trust that He will be the one to provide everything that we need
Help us Mother Mary to be like the widow in the Gospel that we may also give our everything putting our trust in Jesus. Amen
