GOSPEL  REFLECTION

‘When Elijah confronted the widow, she was on the verge of accepting her death and the death of her son, because of malnutrition. How many thousands, even millions, of people in our world face the same slow death because we live in a world suffering from inequality, greed and selfishness.

‘Jesus drew the attention of his disciples to the action of the poor widow who had put in “more than all who have contributed to the treasury … everything she possessed”.  She had done just as Jesus had advised the rich young man to do, who had sought his advice on how to inherit eternal life earlier in Mark’s Gospel, by giving everything she possessed.
