But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.

They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on. In Mark: , Jesus puts down those who are wealthy and do not share what they have.

Lesson of the widow's mite - Wikipedia

He explains that those who are flashy and care only about wealth and prestige will be punished. This ties back to our times in that we tend to look too highly upon those who are famous and wealthy. We should rather judge them by their actions, not by the power they have and what they own. Jesus additionally explains that the poor widow who put in only two small copper coins had given more than all the wealthy people who donated an abundance to the temple treasury.

She had barely anything in the first place and still gave of herself.

Two small copper coins and a big heart: A story on generosity

We should take only what we need and share any extras with those who need it. If we are to become wealthy, we need to not pamper ourselves, but instead, share it with those who have no way of obtaining it. We need to treat everyone equally and with respect and do what we can to follow the Vincentian ways. Next Sunday when the Gospel of Mark will ask us all to reflect on the widow and her two copper coins, we invite you to celebrate what we are calling Common Gifts Sunday.

During our worship service at 1pm in Woodruff Park, we will bring to the altar all of the contributions, donations and pledges we have received from parishes and individuals. It will be a celebration of hope and love not to be missed.
