32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

November 11, 2012

THE WILLING GIFT

The imperative for today is for us to give out of our poverty, which sounds as strange at the stories from which the lessons comes. We have a tale of two widows in our readings today.

The first is Zaraphath, whose life is about as low as one can go and is visited by Elijah. We encounter the second widow in the Gospel gave all that she had to the temple.

The lesson is abundance comes from the willing gift. When we are linked to God, who is nothing but giving, we never run out of that which we give.
