NOVEMBER 26, 2012

Rv 14:1-3, 4b-5 / Lk 21:1-4

REVELATION 14:1-3, 4B-5
I was given another vision: The Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, surrounded by one hundred and forty-four thousand people who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. A sound reverberated in heaven like the sound of the roaring of waves or deafening thunder; it was like a chorus of singers, accompanied by their harps. They sing a new song before the throne, in the presence of the four living creatures and the elders, a song which no one can learn except the hundred and forty-four thou sand who have been taken from the earth. They are those who were not de filed with women but were chaste; these are given to follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They are the first taken from humankind who are already of God and the Lamb. No deceit has been found in them; they are faultless.

LUKE 21:1-4
Jesus looked up and saw rich people putting their gifts into the treasury of the Temple. He also saw a poor widow, who dropped in two small coins. And he said, "Truly, I tell you, this poor widow put in more than all of them. For all of them gave an offering from their plenty; but she, out of her poverty, gave all she had to live on."

The widow in today's Gospel is truly amazing. She has so little and yet she gives all that she has. With her simple action, she shows us what great love she has for God. For this widow, the money she gave could have been used to buy her last meal. It could also have been money she was saving for a rainy day.

This widow demonstrated a zero dependence on herself and her full dependency on God. She trusts God so fully that she abandons everything for Him. She knows for certain that God will take care of her and satisfy all her needs. She shows through the action of giving her last coin that she trusts totally in the Providence of God.

Let us ask ourselves today: can we, like the widow, put our lives in the hands of God, to be able to trust in God so fully that we are able to give our hearts and ourselves wholeheartedly to Him? Can we trust God to guide us in our actions, in our thoughts and deeds, that whatever we do, we shall do for Him?

We pray …
