From Our Poverty. Two of the readings today speak of widows who were very obedient to the will of God. What are we to take away from these passages in light of evangelization? First, we learn that even in the most serious hardships we face in life, especially family, spousal, or financial hardships, we are called to remain faithful to God just as God is faithful to us. Second, we must continue being generous with our time, talent, and treasure and God will provide for us in His time and way. Third, we should be wholly authentic in our manner of discipleship. The Gospel clarifies that we are not be pharisaical or haughty but meek and faithful to the Lord. We should not seek attention for our sake but for the sake of Jesus Christ. Let us not forget to tell others, many others, about the wonders the Lord has done for us in our times of greatest need. God is faithful...forever.
