"The woman entered the temple to make her offering. Others in the temple were offering large sums of money, but she had only two small coins to give. Bystanders noticed how small her financial contribution was. Yet one of those bystanders commented to his friends, 'This poor widow put in more than all the other contributors' (Mark 12:41-44)."The story of the widow's mite can seem unrelatable to us. The widow lived in such poverty that her offering of two small coins was 'all she had, her whole livelihood.' Yet despite her poverty, the widow was much richer than we are, because she was rich in virtue. . . ."
In a recent commentary, Brother Micah Kim, O.P., reflected on how we can make a gift of our struggle to grow in virtue.
