Mk 12:38-44

 

Jesus denounces the scribes as hypocrites. Everything they do and say is for show. They do not even care for the most vulnerable. It is to that point that Jesus points out the widow to his disciples. She gives less than the wealthy and yet it is all she has.

 

It is the poor widow who models humility and generosity. Blessed is she who is poor in spirit. I pray to be more like her.
