REFLECTION to help prepare for scripture readings at today’s Mass:

A focus of today’s readings could be the widow.  To better understand our first reading from the Book of Kings we need to know what has happened to this prophet Elijah in the prior verses. Elijah pops into the scripture narrative without any explanation. He is to serve the Lord God and God will take care of him, giving him food and drink. When water runs out the Lord tells Elijah to move on to another place where a widow has been designated to take care of his needs. This background might help us better understand the rather strange conversation between Elijah and the widow which we hear today.

Now let us move to the gospel. In today’s passage many leaders of the people feign honor while mistreating the poor, embodied in the widow of this story. These rich leaders make a show of contributing from their wealth to the temple treasury. As Jesus watches these leaders come forward, making a public display of their giving, he points out to his disciples “ a poor widow who put in two small coins worth a few cents.” His conclusion: this poor widow put in more than all the others, not giving from her surplus, but from her poverty.

These two widows seem to serve as models of faith. It is their total trust in God which allows them to give away their livelihood, believing that God will take care of them.  Remember that last Sunday we just heard Jesus’s conversation with the faithful scribe… loving God IS loving neighbor. With these two widows that teaching is put into action. So, where does God take care of us, giving us that divine nourishment (love)  we so seek? Not in our surplus, but in our poverty!
