The Widow's Mite (Le denier de la veuve) - James Tissot, 1886-1894

“Do not be afraid. For the Lord God will not let us go empty.”

In this homily for Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Fr. Stephen Hamilton reflects on today’s reading from 1 Kings and the Gospel of Mark. In those passages we hear the story of two widows who gave all that they had to the Lord and in their example we can learn to be transformed as disciples of Christ.
