Father Csaba’s reflections on the gospel.
Very often I feel that my strength, talent, opportunity is so modest that they are inadequate for me to stand in front of You my Lord ! In today’s gospel passage the two small coins of the poor widow give me strength , courage ,so that even with my own modest means I can follow You , despite my insignificance to serve You !! It is good to know my Lord that with You there is no “too much “ or "too little” , important or insignificant because the only thing that matters how much love, devotion , goodness do we possess ! For You our endeavor is a small seed , that by Your divine dispensation will grow to become a very large tree !!! I ask You lovingly , help me my Lord , that without counting costs I, we dare to embark on the path of love and there where I,we happen to be carry out the tasks that Your Holy Majesty entrusted us with !!
translated by dr k.e.
When Jesus looked up he saw some wealthy people putting their offerings into the treasury and he noticed a poor widow putting in two small coins.
He said, “I tell you truly, this poor widow put in more than all the rest; for those others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood.”
Luke 21, 1-4
