THE REAL MEANING BEHIND THE WIDOW’S MITE

Homily
32nd Sunday of the Year – B
—–
1 Kings 17:10-16
Mark 12:41-44

The story of the Widow’s Mite (Mark 12:41-44) is popular among the stories of the Gospels, but it is more than a simple story of Love and Generosity. When read beside the story of Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath (I Kings 17:10-16) it takes on a meaning beyond a simple act of “giving”.

Fr. Bill discusses both stories together and discusses the deeper meaning behind the generosity of both widows.
